Pink Martini Restaurant

Pink Martini, on the corner of Blue Oaks and Lone Tree Boulevards in Rocklin, is a quaint neighborhood spot with the feel of a downtown lounge. Hand-crafted drinks are made with house-infused liquors, simple syrups and fresh-squeezed juice. Its signature cocktail, The Pink Martini ($13), is a refreshing blend of hibiscus, lime juice, elderflower and grapefruit, with a choice of either gin or vodka. Make it “naughty” for a spicy kick of fresh jalapeño that blends harmoniously with the fruitiness of the hibiscus and smooth elderflower. The lime juice adds the perfect pop of acidity for a bright finish. 6700 Lonetree Blvd., Suite 100, Rocklin;
