One of my favorite cocktails is the Jalapeno Martini. I first had one at Hilo Bay Cafe when living in Hawaii. It was not at all difficult to figure out the recipe for this really refreshing drink. I am not truly much of a martini drinker, but I do love all things jalapeno. Here is the recipe for you to try.
2 jiggers of good vodka
2 drops of dry vermouth
1/2 a jigger of juice from pickled jalapenos (save those peppers to add to cornbread or use in recipes)
1 large Gorgonzola stuffed olive ( I make my own, just find nice big olives and remove the pimento)
Fill a martini glass with ice to chill it while making the drink
Put the vodka, vermouth and jalapeno juice in a shaker with ice and shake about 20 times.
Remove the ice from the martini glass, strain the martini into it and garnish with the olive. So good and so easy!
