Something in the Air
A Martini You Inhale

UD - VaporTiniGenerally speaking, you never tinker with a classic—especially when you're talking martinis. We've seen barroom brawls erupt over blue cheese olives.

But every so often, we come across a cocktail innovation that makes us pause and take a deep breath—and in this case we mean literally.

Introducing the VaporTini at Red Kiva, which is like a hookah but in the place of tobacco you'll find booze. It's a trade-off we think you'll find more than satisfactory.

Your night of inhalation inebriation begins when you're presented with a strange alcohol-filled glass orb set in a stainless steel tray. Then your bartender gently heats the outside of the vessel until it reaches precisely 110-degrees Fahrenheit, at which point things get very interesting—namely the alcohol turns into a sweet, sweet vapor. Insert a straw and slowly draw in the intoxicating mist.

You even get a choice of flavors, each served with complimentary nibbles. The Effen Black Cherry Vanilla vodka arrives with a chocolate-covered cherry. Tanqueray Rangpur offers a candied citrus peel garnish. And the Absolut Raspberri is paired with (yep) raspberry candy and chocolates.

Because you hate to breathe on an empty stomach.
