15 Jul Classic favorites and creative concepts served up at ICONS Martini bar
By Brian Krans
Purists may shake their heads, claiming a true martini is made only with vodka or gin. But we feel the iconic martini glass— whether held by Julia Child or James Bond—deserved more of an artist’s perspective, like a Warhol bohemian cocktail.
Hence Icons, a martini bar. You can still get your classic favorites, but unlike Don Draper, martinis are more than just lunch. Our custom martini cocktails mimic the flavor of some of your favorite treats, like a peanut butter cup, rice krispie treat or mint girl scout cookies. Or perhaps one of over 15 fruit flavors, some with a spin of chipotle or mint.

When layering, pour the heaviest parts first. For this drink, start with the orange vodka and work your way down the list. Rim glass with a lemon cocktail sugar and garnish with a lemon wedge.
