Martinis and Wine

Enjoy a martini, help No Kid Hungry: Avocado Grill

March is magic month for a number of reasons: The weather is perfect, baseball spring training is here, there are foodie events galore, and you can drink amazing cocktails to help No Kid Hungry. Throughout the month, dozens of Palm Beach County restaurants will be competing for two coveted mixology spots at Palm Beach’s Taste of the Nation event on April 14 at the Kravis Center (Buy tickets here). The event benefits No Kid Hungry, which works to make sure no child is ever without food. Voting takes place when you buy a cocktail created for the Shake Up competition.

For the Shake Up competition, Avocado Grill created the watermelon cucumber martini ($14). The proceeds go to No Kid Hungry. Chef Julien Gremaud will have dishes at the event, and he’s helping with the largest auction item of Taste of the Nation: the Grand Backyard BBQ Experience—a private chef’s dinner and pig roast for 15-25 people.
