Looking for something out of the ordinary to serve your guests at this year's Halloween party? We partnered with California black olives to create this potent vodka cocktail that will fit right in with the spooky festive mood you're creating. The "black widow" garnishes are super easy to create…if you don't eat them all before they get to the toothpick.
Black Widow Elixir Martini 3 ounces Blavod vodka* 3⁄4 ounce California black olive brine 1 teaspoon dry vermouth Stuffed California black olives *to make this drink with your favorite vodka and still keep the color almost black, try our Freda's Martini recipe!
Stuffed Olives In a small bowl, mix 2 ounces of Kraft cheese with 2 drops of natural red food coloring. Mix well until cheese is tinted red, adding more natural red food coloring it desired. Using your fingers or a small spoon, stuff each olive with the cheese. Thread each olive into a toothpick.
Cocktail In a martini shaker, combine the Blavod vodka with the California black olive brine and dry vermouth. Add ice and shake until well chilled. Strain the mixture into a martini glass and garnish with the olives.
