You’ve likely reserved a table at Baltimore’s Charleston restaurant to sample Cindy Wolf’s multi-course meals, but we highly recommend starting your meal off with one of the specialty cocktails from the bar. Tipplers will appreciate the selection of well-curated libations, most of which are classics — like the One Mint Julep, the Kir Royale or the mojito — though the mod martinis, all of which are poured tableside, are worth a gander. Come summer, we absolutely adore the refreshing Harbor East Martini, made with Grey Goose l’Orange vodka, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, sparkling wine and orange, peach and lime juices — it’s like the fanciest, tastiest, most decadent version of Tang you could envision. The Raz-Putin Martini is another fruity bet, made with Stoli Razberri, Chambord and fresh berries, though if you’re a traditionalist when it comes to spirits, the Purist Martini has your name on it; after all, Bombay Sapphire, Noilly Pratt and a blue cheese-stuffed olive is a recipe for success in our book.
