The Black and Bleu Martini

James Bond would be proud to drink this half vodka martini.

My friends who,  like 007, are not so sure about liking gin yet might be more comfortable toning down the gin with vodka.  Additionally, I seem to be a sucker for Blavod.   (get it? sucker? is this thing on?)

The Black and Bleu Martini

1.5 oz Blavod

1.5 oz London Dry Gin

3/4 oz Dry Vermouth

Combine over ice, strain, garnish with a cube of  hard bleu cheese (bleu jack also works well) & garlic olives.

Alternately, try making it with the gin, then floating the Blavod on top for an interesting look.

 

Another round!

I swear this blog is not called boy drinks Martinis. No really.

The Trader Joe’s Martini….as I see it.
