Best Martini Orange County 2011 - Sababa Restaurant and Lounge
6527 E. Pacific Coast Highway
Long Beach, CA 90803
This dimly lit, modern lounge tucked away in the Marina Shores Shopping Center in Long Beach is home to the best martini in town: the LA Woman. Sababa's most popular martini is made with strawberry vodka, fresh muddled strawberries, orange juice, pineapple juice and Chambord liqueur, then topped with 7UP and soda water. It's like sipping a candy shop. Enjoy an LA Woman at the curved, sleek bar or take a seat with friends on the couches in the red lounge area. If you're looking to eat dinner, too, head upstairs to the main dining area for a meal with a Mediterranean flair—or take in views of the miniature, manmade lake and fountain from the patio. The majority of Sababa's drinks are cocktails with unique uses of fruit juices and purées, but there's also a range of beer, wine and champagne available. Sababa is Hebrew slang for cool, and the venue delivers exactly that.
