In honor of Food Network Star contestant Nikki Martin, who was sadly eliminated in last week’s episode, the kittensharks have created a recipe for a martini with grilled. We forgot to bring our gin to the tiki bar, so it was made with vodka. Half-assed recipe follows:
Chill your martini glass in the freezer and quarter or slice a lemon however you like, then get a basil leaf (fresh out of the garden if you have it). Then, mix the following ingredients (Vodka Version).
- 2 oz., Absolute Citron Vodka.
- 2 oz., Lemon Lime Soda.
- 2.5 oz., Lemon Seltzer.
Grill your lemon slices until they are tasty and marked. Stir, do not shake, those liquid ingredients. This is important. Then, take a long toothpick or skewer or two small toothpicks and impale your lemon and basil leaf as pictured above. Place over your mixed drink and enjoy!
If you want to make it as a real martini, make a gin and vermouth martini and top with the garnish. Done.
