Six Favorite Specialty Cocktails in Phoenix

Who says Tuesday morning is an inappropriate time to talk cocktails? Not us. Cheers, Phoenix -- here are six of our favorites. And yours?

6. Caramel Appletini from Amsterdam
One of the many things Amsterdam, the haven for gay and straight alike in downtown Phoenix, is known for is its too-long-to-count list of custom martinis. One of our favorites is a juicy appletini with a sweet caramel twist. The Caramel Appletini from Amsterdam is a bright green martini made with vodka, apple pucker, butterscotch schnapps, and a little bit of nutty liqueur. Served in a caramel-drizzled glass and garnished with slice of apple, it will quench your thirst and leave you wanting more. Starting the 12th of this month, you can also hit up Martini & Manicure Mondays. At only $5 a martini, you can afford to mix it up a bit in your search for the perfect combination, with fabulous nails to boot.
