This is a very special Dirty martini at Goin’ Coastal with a unique mix of olive juice and herbs and garnished with two fantastic bacon and blue cheese stuffed olives. Are you drooling yet?

Starting the weekend off with a Negroni which is equal parts Campari, Gin, and Sweet Vermouth… and as strong as a martini. (The Patron is pictured because it came with the haul). A negroni is an “apertif” cocktail which is intended to stimulate the appetite. The word comes from the Latin aperire, “to open”. Now I have to go find food strong enough to follow this up….

Dirty Ketel One Martini at Dillingers in Queens. Not the best of anything. I asked the bartender if he had a favorite mixed drink and he was uninspired/uninspiring. Also the burger was just so so. A big “eh” all around.
