Cheers to National Martini Day in these cities

Raise a glass on June 19

Whether you prefer it shaken or stirred, classic or with a twist, there are countless ways to enjoy this iconic cocktail. Why not gather some friends and toast to this timeless libation? Whether you're sipping a traditional gin martini or something more adventurous like a fruity vodka martini, or even a version with no alcohol at all (hello, #FreeSpiritedSips), it's sure to be a delightful way to mark the occasion. Cheers to National Martini Day. 🍸

The Regency Bar & Grill, Loews Regency New York Hotel

The perfect martini does exist, and it is of course only found on Park Avenue. Featuring 4 ounces of Premium Grey Goose Vodka. It is served on a Loews Hotels/Grey Goose branded tray, along with a clear ramekin with both a lemon twist and 3 olives on a metal skewer.  

"The Perfect Martini is a time-honored, no-frills approach to the classic martini. Though there are numerous variations, ours is a pure concept. Premium Grey Goose Vodka, chilled to perfection and served with a choice of a lemon twist or three olives for a garnish. There is a sophistication in its simplicity that makes it perfect every time." - Ivan Cesar, Beverage Manager

Live! by Loews - Arlington

The newest libation crafted by master mixologist, James Carpenter, has arrived just in time to kick off Summerfest at the iconic sports resort and celebrate National Martini Day on June 19. The Paradisi Martini (translated to paradise in Latin) is made with serrano peppers, grapefruit and lime juice, simple syrup, and Ketel One Vodka and topped with chili oil and dehydrated lime. 

"The Paradisi will be the sip of the summer. It brings a bit of heat followed by a balance of tangy citrus and sweetness. Guests and locals may enjoy poolside, on a patio, or in any of our restaurants and lounges, but they will feel as though they've been transported to paradise." - James Carpenter, Director of Outlets

Available at Bar Bourbon, Cut & Bourbon, Clover Club, and SOAK poolside bar through Labor Day.

The Espresso Martini remains one of the most popular cocktails ordered nightly at Bar Stilwell. Grab a seat at this jaw-dropping bar that pays homage to the city's Stilwell Oyster Car, the iconic Pullman car that delivered oysters to Kansas City’s City Market in the late 1800s and enjoy the jolt and buzz of this signature drink. Made with fresh brewed espresso, Tito’s Vodka, J Rieger Café Amaro (Local to KC), Kahlua, Madagascar Vanilla Gifford, and house made demerara syrup. The recipe allows for optimal froth to top it off along with three whole espresso beans to symbolize - health, wealth, and happiness. 

Mason Bar, Loews Nashville Hotel at Vanderbilt Plaza

The mixologists at Mason Bar gave the martini a floral-inspired twist when they crafted the Gatsby Garden. This summery take on the traditional martini infuses Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose vodka, rosé wine, freshly squeezed lime juice, and a splash of cranberry. 

Bar Peters, Loews New Orleans Hotel

New Orleans always has its own way of doing things, so it should be no surprise that the bartenders at Bar Peters took everyone's favorite espresso martini and added that jazzy NOLA pizzazz using Creole strawberries. You might be asking yourself, strawberries and espresso? And the answer is a resounding "yes!" As with all food in this global culinary capital, discover your new favorite flavor combination when sipping on the Creole Strawberry Espresso Martini prepared with Stoli vodka, house-made Creole strawberry syrup, Kahlua, espresso, a touch of cream, and summer berry bitters.

Nothing says vacation quite like a retreat to the islands of the South Pacific. The White Branch at Orchid Court Lounge & Sushi Bar is the perfect fusion of East meets West. The sake vermouth adds a Japanese flair to the classic flavor of Hendrick's Gin. But it wouldn't be a tropical vacation without a taste of Florida sunshine.
