Within “El Barrio” de Playa del Carmen, only a block away from Playa Palms Beachfront Hotel lies this cozy little lounge. I was there to get some guidance on how to make a special Martini from a very famous little bar, Dirty Martini Lounge and I got two. Dirty Martini Bombay and the Mocca Martini. Pay attention to how they prepare this scrumptious drinks, you might want to show off at a party.
1. Mocha Martini: Mix Ice, vodka, Kahlua, Baileys, liquid chocolate, shake well. Put chocolate on the glass for decoration, serve the mocha martini with 3 coffee beans and salud!
2. Dirty Martiny: Mix Ice, gin,olive juice, Vermouth and shake well. Serve the dirty martiny and decorate it with olives on a stick. Salud!
But what I have to say really about in Dirty Martini Lounge is that I was there for only a few minutes and so much happened! I got to meet endearing owner Karen Lange, got a card for job collaboration from an ex big advertising agency owner, tried a courtesy Caipirinha ¨de la casa¨, met fun Playa Palms Hotel owners by chance (watch them, they say hello at the end of the video), got a special recipe on how to open a beer (I will have to post it in another entry) and watched life unravel as everyone danced, laughed and met one another. What can I say, this little bar has a life of it´s own, anything can happen in that slick little Lounge.
