Making their triumphant return to the Kortman Gallery outside bar, the Sock Monkey Martini™ and the now classic Love Lemon Martini™ will once again be the featured cocktails as this year’s On The Waterfront’s favorite martini. The Love Lemon Martini™ was inspired by a festival kids’ treat that was served years ago at “Beattie Is...” (back in the ’70’s) and Rockford Art Museum’s “Greenwich Village Art Fairs”. The idea was to suck the juice from the lemon through the peppermint stick. The stick not only sweetened the juice but added a cooling sensation.
