Trellis at The Heathman Hotel Kirkland
The Martini Cocktail Through History:


One of the most well known and delicious cocktails of all time, the name Martini once referred to a specific cocktail containing nothing more than gin or vodka, vermouth, and sometimes bitters. In an effort to restore this drink to its former glory we bring you the evolution of the Martini. Join Trellis in toasting during its special tribute, and taste the Martini through the recipes of its evolution:


Turf Club-1884, the first incarnation ($14)
Martinez-1887, sweeter and more complex ($14)
Tuxedo-1890’s, strong, dry, nutty with Fino Sherry ($13)
The Classic Dry Martini-1906 ($10)
Arsenic and Old Lace-1939 ($12)
Vesper-1953, named after the love interest in Casino Royale, ($12)
Modern Martini, whether vodka or gin, olive or twist, extra dry or a good measure of vermouth, how you like it is the modern way.
