Free cocktails! Lola's celebrates 16 years of apple martinis

May 29, 2012 |  2:35 pm

Mac&cheeseAfter a hard week's work (we'll pretend it isn't an after-holiday short week), there's nothing like a good, stiff cocktail to start the weekend -- especially if that cocktail is free. Sure, it's only Tuesday, but for those who observe #tuesdayboozeday, it's never too early to start thinking about a martini.

To celebrate 16 years of apple martinis, Lola's in West Hollywood is throwing a sweet 16 birthday party Friday with free cocktails. From 7 to 9 p.m.,  guests can enjoy free Ketel One apple martinis, appetizers and a DJ.

Lola's claims that in 1996, owner Lola Dunsworth and some members of the staff mixed together the first apple martini in the back of the bar, using green apple Puckers, Ketel One vodka and sweet and sour mix. Ever since, it's been a hit. If you want to try the famous green martini, all you have to do is RSVP for the party at LolasSweet16@gmail.com. RSVPing early is recommended as space is limited and it's first come, first served.

Lola's West Hollywood, 945 N. Fairfax Ave., West Hollywood.
