James Bond would be proud to drink this half vodka martini.
My friends who, like 007, are not so sure about liking gin yet might be more comfortable toning down the gin with vodka. Additionally, I seem to be a sucker for Blavod. (get it? sucker? is this thing on?)
The Black and Bleu Martini
1.5 oz Blavod
1.5 oz London Dry Gin
3/4 oz Dry Vermouth
Combine over ice, strain, garnish with a cube of hard bleu cheese (bleu jack also works well) & garlic olives.
Alternately, try making it with the gin, then floating the Blavod on top for an interesting look.
