Is Your Mouth Watering Yet?

August 25, 2011

If you’re a cocktail drinker and enjoy the bartender’s quirky concotion every now and again, I have a new drink for you.

Created by and featuring Seattle’s own Beechers Handmade Cheese, I introduce you to the grilled cheese martini.

Wait! Don’t go! There’s more…

The local cheese icon is debuting a grilled cheese martini (yes, bright orange and made with actual grilled cheese sandwiches) at its newly-opened New York restaurant. Because I have yet to taste this interesting adult beverage, courtesy goes to the Seattle Times for quoting a mouth-watering description of how the drink is made and how it tastes.

  • “Into a cocktail mixer go vine-ripe tomatoes, muddled basil, tomato juice and
    a healthy  of that double-filtered grilled cheese vodka,” one blogger
    wrote. “Then there’s shaking and stirring, a martini glass is rimmed with
    house-reduced balsamic and crispy bits of Surryano prosciutto, and the entire
    concoction is poured over a giant tomato juice ice cube.”

Don’t feel left out Seattle. The signature drink is available for a limited time at Bennett’s Pure Food Bistro on Mercer Island, a sibling company of Beechers.

This drink is made with a real grilled cheese sandwich. The vodka is infused for 24 hours with a sandwich, prepared just like Beechers would for any paying customer.
