Currently, the restaurant has 11 featured martinis on its drink menu. Tthe most popular is the Cosmopolitan, while one of the most unusual martinis listed on the menu is the St. Gintini, mixed with Bombay Sapphire, St. Germain elderflower liqueur ​and dry vermouth.

With various wines on the list, Fire & Ice takes home the award for Best Wine List. A vast selection of grapes and a full wine list helped steer Back Mountain voters in favor of Fire & Ice. Co-owner Gary Edwards says wine by the glass is the most popular offering, but it all depends on what the customers are in the mood for on any particular night.
