The $12,500 Martini

Want him to be more spontaneous? How about a spur of the moment proposal? Ladies, here’s an idea on how to plant the seed, and see what grows. Because sometimes guys need a little hint.

Get all glammed up with your man and head to the Oak Room at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, where gorgeous deep mahogany meets country club elegance. The Bill Laughlin Jazz Quartet performs on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:15 p.m.

Once you’re there, flip through the encyclopedic cocktail menu. Turn to the back page, where you’ll find the $12,500 martini—just what you’ve been looking for. Drop the hint. Check his reaction.

The drink arrives with a sparkling engagement ring and includes one night booked in a suite, decked out with candlelight, romantic music, roses, and champagne, and tomorrow, breakfast in bed. The ring can be selected on the spot at DePrisco Diamond Jewelers, which has a storefront just steps away from the bar within the hotel.

If you’re really only going to have one drink. This would be the savor forever.
