Bruschetta Martini

Adapted from a recipe by Eric Tecosky, Jones Hollywood, West Hollywood, CA.

“Everyone’s favorite appetizer is now their favorite cocktail. Form meets function in this perfect start to any dinner party. Enjoy!!!”  Eric Tecosky

2 cherry tomatoesBruchetta Martini

60 ml (2 oz) Beluga vodka

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Dirty Sue premium olive juice

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lemon juice

1 basil leaf

1 small slice of garlic

pinch of salt

pinch of black pepper

Muddle the tomatoes in a mixing glass, the add the remaining ingredients, reserving one of the basil leaves for a garnish.  Add ice and shake well for 10 to 15 seconds.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass through a fine-mesh strainer, and add the basil-leaf garnish.

gaz sez:  I used a different vodka and different olive juice, but this one worked real well despite my sloppiness.  I love savory drinks that aren’t Bloody Marys.  Nice one, Eric!
