Rocks, on the martini at the Capital Grille
If your bank account isn't on the rocks, the Capital Grille has just the holiday item for you: a $1,000 martini.
But this drink, officially named the Share Our Strength Charity Martini, comes with a real twist: a white topaz and diamond caviar rope bracelet, a limited-edition, custom piece by designer Steven Lagos. Talk about on the rocks!
One hundred percent of the profits from the sale of any SOS martini (on an American Express card) will benefit Share Our Strength, the nonprofit leader in the fight to end childhood hunger in America. Joining the Capital Grille -- which just happens to be the Best Steakhouse in Denver, according to Jason Sheehan -- in promoting the deal are Lagos and American Express.
Don't line up all at once, though: The drink -- which, in addition to the bracelet, also contains Ketel One Citroen Vodka, Cointreu, lime and cranberry juices -- won't be available until November 24, but then will stay on the menu through January 3. Order one up at the Capital Grille, 1450 Larimer Street, www.thecapitalgrille.com.
