Rosy Red Martini found at Cuvée
37 Raymond Road West Hartford
Ingredients: Ciroc red berry vodka, dash of cranberry, Chambord
When you think of Cuvée Champagne Bar, well, you think of champagne, naturally. But between all the bubbly offerings are a plethora of gem-toned martini and mixed drink refreshments. What the martinis have in common with their sparkling wine cousins is a distinct patina of sophistication.
Take the Rosy Red Martini. The color is bright, but the favors are subtle and the liquor is top shelf. Ciroc Red Berry Vodka is the definitive star of this drink. It has a fluid, tart taste approved by staff and patrons, and creator P Diddy alike. A dash of cranberry and chambord round off this bright and balanced summer cocktail. You can't go wrong ordering once of these during Cuvée's legendary happy hour.
