CAPE CORAL, Fla. (April 9, 2014) – Red’s Fresh Seafood House & Tavern in Cape Coral certainly knows seafood, but it also knows how to make a great martini.

There are also the Godiva Chocolate Martini, Mango Martini, Milky Way Martini, Strawberry Cheesecake Martini, Sunset, Washington Apple and a White Boot Martini made with Grand Marnier, Frangelico, vanilla vodka and cream with a nutmeg garnish and graham cracker rim.
