Ordering apple martinis used to elicit snorts from anyone within earshot. That's because they're the consummate bitch drink: sickly sweet, bright green, with a syrup slick on top and one red maraschino cherry sunk in the bottom. But Kevin Vanemburgh, the general manager at Thomas, figured out a way to make a classy, feng shui apple martini. It requires two windowpane-clear ingredients: Berentzen apple liqueur and Fris apple vodka. One sip tastes more Red Delicious than an apple Jolly Rancher, and it's topped with two paper-thin slices of apple, notched and fitted together at the corner of the glass to create Vanemburgh's "apple globe." Trust us: When you see it, you'll understand. And if $8 sounds more like the price of a movie ticket than the price tag on a cocktail, order the Big Apple on Wednesdays, when every martini is $5.
