Known for it’s daily half-off happy hour and various young-professional social mixers, Blue Martini is a good spot for people watching in Mary Brickell Village. The Florida-based cocktail lounge has a variety of Van Gogh cocktails. Their signature Blue Martini, which is served with a bendable glow stick and features Van Gogh Blue vodka, created specifically for the hot spot, tastes like a liquid blueberry pixie stick. The Brazilian is a purple mix that is as sweet as a grape Skittles candy.
