14 Days of Valentines : Single Ladies Martini

single ladies martini

We are continuing 14 Days of Valentines with this gem! It’s called the Single Ladies Martini! Now, I’ve had my fair share of celebrating Valentine’s Day as a single lady, but the best part about it is celebrating it with your single lady friends! Honestly, Valentine’s Day may be the Superbowl for couples, but it is one of the ultimate stuff yourself with chocolate and/or alcohol for the rest of us. Both options sound pretty fun!

Anyway, there’s no shame in being single! I am right there with you, which is why I came up with this cocktail. I am a sucker for some grenadine and ginger ale, but this is a martini! Champagne is the drink to toast with, add some vodka with it, and we’ll be toasting Valentine’s Day together! Now, I’m not a certified bartender, but I do love a good martini. My method probably isn’t the most correct way, so bartenders, please don’t get mad at me!


  • Champagne
  • Vodka
  • Ginger Ale
  • Grenadine
  • Strawberry (for garnish)


Fill your martini glass about halfway with champagne. Fill the rest of the glass with Ginger Ale, leaving enough space for the rest of the ingredients. Pour two shots of vodka, and a splash of grenadine. The grenadine will most likely sink to the bottom, so stir it up so you can get some of that yummy flavor!

This is the perfect martini for Galentine’s day if you’re a single lady like myself. Heck, this is the perfect martini for anyone! If alcohol is not your thing (totally understand), this can be made as a virgin drink by omitting the vodka, and replacing the champagne with a seltzer water.

If you make this cocktail, please be sure to share what you think! We’d love to hear it!
