Artini Mixologists and Drinks
These fabulous bartenders will be creating art-inspired drinks for the Corcoran's Artini competition all through March.
Comments () | Published February 23, 2010

Each "artini" is inspired by a work of art in the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s collection, and each will be on view during the 1869 Society’s ARTINI benefit on Saturday, April 2, where the winning artini will be announced.
 
Check out the full list of Feature Nights and visit the participating venues listed below to sample the artinis, and visit the Corcoran's website to view the artwork that inspired each artini. Vote for your favorite at washingtonian.com/artini by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 1.
