Refreshing Cocktail for Spring

Even though there’s still some snow on the ground, Spring is officially on the horizon! {And it’s about time.} For the past few weeks, the restaurant has been featuring a White Winter Cosmopolitan – and it more than lived up to its name. This week, to celebrate the official start of Spring on the 20th, we decided it was time to jump on the Spring bandwagon and add some color to our cocktail list. We are now featuring a classic martini, but gave it a new, sassy name:

We’ve turned a Ruby Red Grapefruit Martini into our very own “Pretty in Pink-tini.” Sure it’s girly, but it was so nice to draw those flowers on the board.
