Martini Madness

September 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

We Will Shake Again Next Year…

With the best interest of our attendees, donors, volunteers, and employees, we announce the cancellation of our 2020 Martini Madness Event.

The public health crisis has only increased the funding needs of New Orleans City Park. The decision to cancel Martini Madness allows us to focus on future fundraising events with Covid-19 safety precautions in place. We are diligently working to ensure we can continue to meet the expectations of our members while safeguarding the health of all who support our events.

Martini Madness is a time when we are able to grab our comrades and join Friends of City Park at the Arbor Room to taste over 25 specialty martinis from Republic National Distributing Company and enjoy delectable cuisine from over 35 of New Orleans’ best restaurants.


Absolut Elyx Vesper Martini

Although we cannot be together this year, we encourage you to make the martinis that you have grown to appreciate from us each year.  Special thanks to Mr. Fred Holley who has provided us with this recipe featuring Absolut Elyx Vodka.

¼ oz Lillet Blanc

1 Twist Lemon Zest
