After you pop the question comes the inevitable list of questions. How did he ask you? Where? Can I see your ring? You can make it a doozie of a story with the $10,000 Monica Martini at Minus5 Ice Bar at the Monte Carlo and Mandalay Bay.
The Jewel of Russia Ultra Vodka martini comes garnished with a diamond engagement ring. Just give Minus5 48 hours notice, and they will embed the Aaron Lelah Jewelers ring of your choice into a martini glass made from pure New Zealand artesian water.
The night starts with you and your sweetie first donning faux fur coats and booties before entering the icy hand-crafted ice sculptures and architecture. Inside, you order up the martinis, one with the ring inside. Perfect engagement story included.
About 90 percent of the cost of the drink is the ring. The rest is the drink itself. The Monica is named after a Minus5 bartender who has been engaged three times in two years.
But don’t think you have to miss out on a cool experience just because you have cold feet. You can order up the Couple Special with furs and Champagne Toast for $50 on Valentine’s Day.
