Bloody Martini - sort of a 'tini take on a Bloody Mary - and create something unique!
So I decided to make a martini inspired by one of my favorite snacks, a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, the B.L.T. in diner lingo.
Now, don't get freaked out! I'm not using bacon grease or suggesting that a slice of bacon is a great martini garnish (though I did think about that one, lol). The bacon comes in with the stuffed olives for garnish. See, that slice of bacon did inspire me on the garnish after all!
You can get my recipe for "Stuffed Olives To Die For" at TheMartiniDiva.Com - they're also great as appetizers to go with this martini!
Feel free to spice this recipe up with some Tabasco sauce or hot sauce if you like a little fire and make sure you do the special rimming mix I suggest in the recipe as it really adds a lot of flavor!
Remember to drink responsibly and watch your salt intake too! BTW, this martini can easily be adapted into an alcohol free cocktail!
