First Impressions

Artini 2013 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art

Inspired by works in the Corcoran Collection, 8 of the Washington D.C's best mixologists compete to create the most artistic martini at the Annual Corcoran Artini Night! 


Heavenly Spirits' Marie Duffau Napoleon, La Muse Verte Absinthe, and Artez Eau de Vie de Poire were featured in four of the artinis some the night. #tbt to 2013 and some great cocktails!
