Cab's martinis

There's a new list of signature martinis and cocktails at Cab's Wine Bar Bistro.

Or sip specialty concoctions such as the Dave's JD honey-bourbon-basil lemonade -- a mix of Jack Daniels honey bourbon Tennessee whiskey, fresh basil, simple syrup, lemon juice and sour mix, served on the rocks.
