Conradtini, the Creative Martini

    Martini aficionados take note: Conrad Hotels and Resorts invites guests behind the bar to become their own master mixologist with a new bespoke cocktail service called Conradtini. You won’t find standard drink menus on the bar tops of Conrad’s 18 worldwide hotels and resorts; instead guests pore over a list of liquors, mixers, garnishes, and even stemware that may be combined to create the “perfect” cocktail. Ingredients vary at each hotel and resort to reflect local culture and flavors. But don’t worry if you don’t fancy yourself a mixologist just yet—Conrad’s international staff of bartenders is also on hand to create a concoction just for you, based on your preferences for liquor, carbonation, and sweetness. Try the Brickelltini, created by the Conrad Miami’s resident manager Josep Juncosa and named for its location on Brickell Avenue, which features vodka, Midori, and fresh lime juice. Conradtini cocktails will be available throughout 2008 at all Conrad hotels and resorts. (www.conradhotels.com)
