kicked off its third annual Martini Week
with an event at The Kitchen NYC
(146 East 44th Street). The night
featured Bombay Sapphire and Grey Goose martini cocktails crafted by some of NYC's finest master mixologists. With libations ranging from Pink Sapphires (made with Bombay Sapphire Gin, maraschino, lemon juice and cranberry juice) to Orchard Apple Martinis (made with Grey Goose Vodka, apple juice, lime juice and simple syrup), guests enjoyed 14 different martini stations and jaw-trembling appetizers like juniper braised duck and jonah crab cakes. It was an exciting way to begin the two-week city-wide promotion, running through April 6th.
During Martini Week, 19 of Thrillist’s favorite bars and restaurants will offer their own unique interpretation of a classic Gin or Vodka Martini, each for around $11.
Participating venues are: 48 Lounge, Aspen Social, Ava Lounge, Beaumarchais, Bounce, Co-op, Empire Hotel Lobby Bar, Lexington Brass, Macondo, Madison Club Lounge, Oceana, Rare, Rayuela, Revel, Son Cubano, Sons of Essex, Taj, Vander Bar and Ventanas.
