Shaken, Not Stirred

Steel Restaurant

3102 Oak Lawn Ave Ste 100, Dallas, TX 75219

The 'Green Eye'd Geisha' martini is indeed served green at this popular Indochine restaurant and lounge. Ty-Ku liquor and cucumber vodka in a shiny martini glass will have all eyes on you

Cosmo Restaurant & Bar

1212 Skillman St, Dallas, TX 75206

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.

Asian Mint

11617 N. Central Expy Ste 135, Dallas, TX 75243

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 Dallas

2332 Leonard St, Dallas, TX 75201

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.

Tre Amici Prime Steakhouse and Seafood

18020 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75287

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.
