Back in the 1980s, Captain Bolt was looking for an amazing new cocktail recipe and stumbled upon the French Martini. Revolted by the taste of vodka he spit it out angrily and handed a bottle of Revenge to the bartender. “Make it with this ye brut!” he said thus creating the French Revenge. The French Revenge was such a hit even the ladies in the pub were enjoying this fruity cocktail. This secret recipe is featured today in his very own tasting room in West Palm Beach, in a chilled glass. As Captain Bolt would say, Revenge is a drink… best served cold.
Here’s What You’ll Need
- 1.5 oz Revenge Rum
- 1.5 oz Pineapple Juice

Our next ingredient is the Chambord, for those of you who have never heard of it, it’s simply a black raspberry liqueur. This recipe calls for 1oz, so we’re going to measure it out in our jigger and then add it to our shaker. Splice the mainbrace our spirits are starting to quite savvy crew!
Lastly, we’re going to swap vodka out of the traditional recipe for the finest rum in all of the 7 seas. Take your Revenge Rum and measure 1.5 oz with your jigger to add to the shaker as your final ingredient.
Shake your drink fully and take your chilled glass out of the fridge. Since this is a martini we will not be adding any ice. The chilled glass is a nice touch to ensure your beverage stays cold. After all, we’re pirates not savages.
Captain Bolt loves to spice up his beverages with a bit of garnish. Take a toothpick and line up 3 raspberries on the pick. Simply place on top of the glass and it’s ready to be served. Congrats Sailor, now it’s time to enjoy!
