Au Jus Martini

When an olive just isn't enough

Dirty martinis - vodka or gin spiked with olive brine and garnished with more olives - have seen a huge resurgence here in my part of the U.S. over the last five or ten years. There is something about the union of ice cold alcohol and savory, salty treats that folks clearly find intriguing. Plus, you get a drink and a snack all in one.

What if you're hungry for something a little more substantial, but not so hungry that you feel compelled to order a burger or something? I propose an Au Jus Martini - vodka or gin spiked with natural beef juices and garnished with a seared cube of tender beef.

Mind you, I'm a vegetarian, but I did eat beef for a long time and I'm pretty sure this would be delicious. Just as long as it's served straight up and not on the rocks - that would be gross.

       Noun: bullshot -- 1. A cocktail made with vodka and beef bouillon or consommé   

       I dunno if adding a beef cube makes this RECIPE different enough.

       Aspic under correction, but I am sure this is widely known to exist.

       I'll have a cheesy martini please...sharp cheese. Yup and Yum.

       I've heard that olives stuffed with blue cheese instead of pimentos make for a really great martini. Is that true?

       I prefer the dirty vodka martini, but adding a boullion cube seems so very odd.
Has anyone actually tried something like this?
that link... mmmmm bacon!
