Blue Smoke Martini

Jim Franco

Servings: 1

The “rinse” of Scotch lends this martini a smoky flavor, while the blue cheese-stuffed olives add a pleasing tang.  You can purchase the olives, or you can stuff them at home: pipe softened blue cheese, preferably Maytag Blue, into pitted Spanish Queen olives, as they do at Blue Smoke.

Ingredients

  • Splash of Scotch, preferably Laphroaig
  • Ice
  • 3 oz vodka, preferably Stolichnaya, chilled
  • 3 olives stuffed with blue cheese

Preparation

  • Pour the Scotch into a chilled martini glass, tilt the glass to coat the inside, and pour out the excess.  Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.  Add the vodka and shake vigorously.  Strain into the coated glass.  Drop the olives into the glass and serve with an oyster fork across the top of the glass, or garnish with the olives threaded onto a cocktail pick.fc031pe38-06.jpg
