Itty Bitty Pretty from Albert’s Bar

Albert's Itty Bitty Pretty Martini

An approachable cocktail with intriguing layers of flavor.

This light and approachable vodka cocktail by Pete Vasconcellos, beverage director of Albert’s Bar, was originally created for sister bar, The Penrose, when it opened eight years ago. But the refreshing Itty Bitty Pretty, with its intriguing layers of flavor, became so popular that it was brought back several times, including for the opening menu at Albert’s Bar.
