Vampire Kiss Martini

Take a French Martini, cross it with a Vampire, ditch the juice and add a splash of bubbly and you have given birth to a Vampire Kiss Martini. The taste of the drink itself is anything but scary, it's actually very elegant and something that would work not only for Halloween, but for Valentine's Day or any Champagne-worthy occasion. For it's intended holiday, it is perfect because the Chambord gives it a dark, almost black color.

The rim on this cocktail is a little devious because the courtesy image suggests a syrup that drips along the edge while the written recipe indicates the standard sugar rim, which would be crystalline. If you want the syrupy look: drizzle a thin stream of grenadine (or a similar red syrup) on the inside of the rim of the glass. Practice and use frozen glasses for the best visual results.
