Eleven Eleven Drink Special for June

Date: June 5th, 2009; By: Stacey

The Hot and Dirty Martini 

The Eleven Eleven Hot & Dirty Martini ……What a great name for a cocktail. This little creation is perfect for folks that love their dirty martinis…..with a kick! A perfect balance of a salty burning sensation in your belly.
 
To make this beverage, we marinate sliced sweet red bell peppers, sliced jalapenos, whole habaneros, and whole serranos in vodka for 2-3 days. Once it has that perfect balance of heat, we strain if off. Use 3oz. of infused pepper vodka, an ounce of olive juice and a salted rim. Garnish with blue cheese stuffed olives. Delicious!
