While we wait for the Ritz Paris to reopen its doors next year, famed bartender Colin Peter Field of the Hemingway Bar shares five of his signature cocktail recipes to replicate at home.


Infusing a bottle of your favorite vodka with fresh fruits, herbs, or spices is one of the easiest ways to transform the standard vodka martini. Field developed this version, which offers a dry, delicately perfumed aroma thanks to a month-long steep in fresh raspberries, for those with palates that lean more sweet than savory.



1 bottle vodka, such as Russian Standard
½ cup fresh raspberries, plus more for garnish


Make the Raspberry vodka: Pour out 4 oz of the vodka and reserve for another use. Add raspberries to the bottle and place in the refrigerator to macerate for one month.

To serve, strain 3 oz raspberry vodka into a mixing glass over ice. Stir for 10–15 seconds. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a fresh raspberry, if you wish.
