It's March, and that's reason enough to drink from a fancy shmancy glass.0
If you just got really excited, maybe even said “Yes!” or “Sweet!” aloud at your desk. If there was a fist pump involved with your reaction to this week’s food find, then we half love you and half advise you watch a little less television. But regardless of your visible reaction, here at the Daily Vogue, we suggest you think Tasting Table New York and Thrillist for bringing you – Martini Week.
Martini Week extends March 1-14th (it was actually two weeks!).We would’ve written this sooner, but we were busy sampling the $10 martinis at several participating venues. Many Martini Week spots (see also: New Yorks classiest establishments) offer vodka and gin classics, while others list a combination of classics and some of their new school special martinis. 10 Downing’s delicious Elder Fizz (Grey Goose Vodka, St-Germain and maraschino liqueur) was on the list as was Tabla’s “Tablatini” (Grey Goose Vodka, pineapple “soup” containing sweetened pineapples and lemongrass, and a squeeze of lemon) and at Public last night we sampled a “Liquid Gold Martini” (Grey Goose Le Citron flavored vodka, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice and kumquat honey syrup containing star anise and clove).
For a super classic experience head up to Peacock Alley at the Waldorf, Delmonico’s or the Oak Room. Not interested in life above 14th Street? You might try Madam Geneva on Bleeker and Bowery or Rayuela on Allen. Whatever floats your spirit-loving boat. It’s March, and that’s reason enough to sip something strong and feel fancy shmancy glass.
