Grilled Cheese Martini
Senior Editor, CNBC.com
This whole fusing vodka with other flavors has now officially jumped the shark.
From Urban Daddy we learn of the "Grilled Cheese Martini."
Introducing the Grilled Cheese Martini, a comfort food cocktail that counts grilled-cheese-flavored vodka as its main ingredient, available off-menu now at Beecher’s.
Let’s begin with some seemingly arbitrary numbers: 37. 24. 1.
37: tries it took a team of bartenders to successfully fuse vodka and grilled cheese.
24: hours that the sandwich is left to sit in a vat of vodka.
1: amount of times before tonight this has been served on American soil.
To sample this once-in-a-generation scientific spirit breakthrough, head deep down into the Cellar at Beecher’s, a fortress of glass, steel and aging cheese. Once inside, grab a server and tell them you require a sandwich. On the rocks.
What happens next can only be described as a deft blend of magic, lunacy and lunch. Into a cocktail mixer go vine-ripe tomatoes, muddled basil, tomato juice and a healthy pour of that double-filtered grilled cheese vodka.
Here's another number: 0.
That's the appropriate number of times any respectable person should ever order a martini with another food in it.
