Lava Lamp Martini Recipe

User Rating 2 Star Rating (1 Review)

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

This martini is fun and once you get the hang of it you can make a stunning cocktail that impresses everyone around. The drink itself is simply a mix of vodka and raspberry, but it is the visual effect that sets it apart.

The trick for the lava lamp effect is the thick honey and raspberry liqueur mixture. Be sure to keep the ratio 1:1 for the mix and use a spoon to gently drizzle it into the shaken vodka. Once you find the right drizzle rate you'll know it, then just repeat it every time.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

It's near impossible to make a great 'lava lamp' effect with this recipe, but I did find it looked cool if you drizzle the honey-liqueur mix around the inside edges of the glass, instead of trying to make 'lava'.
