It wouldn't be right if this Lakewood bar left cosmos off its menu, but it's nice to live a little. So belly up to the tiki bar, enjoy the lava lamps and the let Hawaiian Punch Martinis usher you into a booze-soaked night. Watch out, though. The concoction of pineapple, cranberry juice and cherry vodka will sneak up on you.
This Asian restaurant's delicate and zingy flavors make the perfect foil for martinis. Throughout the week, diners are treated to daily specials on favorites like the Sake Tini, a showstopper in its geometric glass, and the Coffee Martini, a surefire kick with its java beans resting atop a thick layer of froth.
Hotel ZaZa's poolside bar lures the young and beautiful for which martinis make the perfect fashion accessories. Try the Zatini, a concotion of Grey Goose, Cointreau, cucumber-honeydew puree and fresh lime, or The Big Flirt or Peach Jalapeno when you're feeling a little saucy.
A classy steakhouse is a scene worthy of sipping martinis. For full effect, savor the Lemoncello martini with Citron Vodka, Lemoncello, Chambord, sugar and of course, lemons. When the live pianist is playing, you'll be celebrating Rat Pack style.
