Recipe: Cajun martini

By: Kara Newman

Makes 1 drink.

This simple and elegant drink was adapted from the Bombay Club, New Orleans. "This lives up to the martini name," one of our drink testers raved. "It's really cool, and smooth, and the olives are a delicious treat." (We consumed a handful straight up—those olives are addictive!) Although the Bombay Club serves its signature hot martini with a mix of pepper and citrus vodkas, martini purists may prefer gin.

INGREDIENTS
1 ounce pepper-infused Vodka
1 ounce citron vodka
1/4 ounce dry vermouth
2 tabasco-spiced olives (recipe follows)

PREPARATION
Combine vodkas and vermouth in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with tabasco-spiced olives speared on a decorative toothpick.

Tabasco-spiced olives

INGREDIENTS
1 jar of green olives with pimentos (reserve a little of the olive juice from the jar if you like your martinis hot and dirty!)
2 tablespoons tabasco sauce

PREPARATION
Drain brine from jar of green olives. Spoon tabasco sauce over the olives into the jar. Cover tightly and shake to coat the olives in tabasco. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
