Fancy yourself a martini connoisseur? Well, here's your chance to put your money where your pretty mouth is. Through June 30, the Capital Grille steakhouse is pouring $1,000 martinis with 100 percent of the profits being donated to Share Our Strength, a charity aiming to quash childhood hunger in America. Ten Benjis will get you a cocktail glass splashed with Cîroc Vodka, Crème de Mure and fresh berries, decorated with an extravagant sparkler by acclaimed jewelry designer Steven Lagos. Your next three-martini lunch could support a worthy cause, but if you're not feeling particularly philanthropic, keep a clear head and check your bill.

Not to be outdone, New York City's landmark Algonquin Hotel serves an even grander $10,000 martini, primarily geared toward guests wanting to pop the question in style. Along with the Belvedere vodka and Martini & Rossi vermouth, a loose diamond clinks at the bottom of the glass. Now that's a cocktail that'll leave one shaken, and the other stirred.
