Lush-US Drinks: Foodzilla’s Mazel Tov Martini
Vodka is my poison of choice… perfect for infusing flavors & I promise you after you see this episode… VODKA will be your poison of choice also. My Boo Chef Stu & I had our work cut out for us by a former Celebrity Chef from South AFrica that hired us to cater her husband’s 35th birthday party… straight comedy I tell ya! Hmmm time for some new shot game rules. Take a shot every time Melissa walks in the kitchen, Stuart says “really”, I roll my eyes, Melissa calls Stuart’s food “stew”, you see one of Stuart’s Tupperware products, see any of my pink crap & every time I say “Mollywop”… yup there is a serious calling for a mollywop in this ep… CHEERS my loves!
1 Bottle of Vodka (Recommend Rain Organics)
3 Hothouse Cucumbers, thinly sliced (mandoline works PERFECT for this)
1 Tbl Chopped Cilantro (or parsley, parsley gives it an earthier flavor)
2 Meyer Lemons, thinly sliced & seeded
Feta Cheese Stuffed Olives
In a Large jug or Apothecary jar add entire bottle of vodka, sliced lemons, cucumbers & chopped herbs.
Close tightly & in a cool, dark area of your kitchen or pantry allow to infuse for no less than 3 days, the flavor after 5 is SUPERB! Ooh if you have one of these glass servers for lemonade… it’s PERFECT for infusing
Ladle infusion into a martini shaker with ice & a drop of olive juice (the dirtier the better) & shake rigorously. Pour into chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a cocktail pick skewered with cherry tomato, pearl onion, feta cheese stuffed olives & add a slice of cucumber to the bottom of the glass…. MAZEL TOV!
