Summer Passion Fruit Martini

By Seth Fera-Schanes

Featuring fresh passion fruit puree, lime juice, vodka and Chambord this is one martini you will want to make at your next summer party.  See full ingredient list and directions below.

We will continue to bring you refreshing cocktail recipes throughout the summer.  This one comes from 230 Fifth rooftop bar in Manhattan.  Just a note, in New York it is acceptable to use your building address as the company name (or go uber-cool and just leave the signage off altogether.)

I like this bar for a few reasons.

First, it actually is in an office building on the corner of 27th Street and 5th Avenue.  You walk into the main lobby and then head to the elevators in the back of the building and press the button for the top floor.

The first level looks like a scene from the movie Casino.  Suede and leather couches, low seating, huge windows with a panoramic view of the city and dim light.  Did I mention there is stuffed wild cat to greet you when you exit the elevator?

Head one level up to the roof for a sudo-jungle theme with incredible views of the city and Empire State building.  A nice touch is on chilly days, robes are provided to all guests.  Classy (not gross.)  I have worn one and felt pretty cool.

I would recommend getting here early because it will get crowded.  Late afternoon or early evening drinks are great because you will get a seat and can grab some nice pictures of the city.
