Healing House’s Ultimate Martini Tour and Gala fundraiser has returned.

On Tuesday, June 25 patrons can head to Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar on Kaliste Saloom in Lafayette to taste the first signature martini of the 8-week long fundraising tour.

Eight restaurants will participate each week until August 13. The restaurants are competing against one another to see who can create the best martini.

Walk-On’s signature martini is a Sparkling Spicy Pineapple Martini. The drink consists of ABSOLUT Peppar Vodka, pineapple juice, simple syrup, and fresh squeezed lemon. It is garnished with a fresh pineapple chunk and a splash of champagne.

Restaurant patrons can vote for their favorite martini by donating $1. A Tini Tuesday coupon can be printed from the Healing House website to receive a $2.00 ABSOLUT signature martini with the purchase of an entrée at participating restaurants.

New coupons will be available every Tuesday for the debut of each martini.

The fundraiser will end with a Gala event on August 17, where all eight restaurants will compete for the title of “Lafayette’s ABSOLUT Best Martini.” The Gala will be held at the DoubleTree By Hilton Lafayette on Pinhook.

All of the monies raised from the Martini Tuesday fundraiser will directly benefit Healing House’s operations.
