So what’s a “Tom’s Bada Bing Bada Boom?”
3 oz. Grey Goose Vodka – chilled a few hours in the freezer
A Quick Mention of Vermouth – whispered preferably
LOTS of crushed ice
2 of the largest Green Olives, you can find, rinsed and stuffed with Gorgonzola Piccante - then skewered on toothpick
Makes One Drink
Chill martini glasses in freezer a couple of hours before using.
Pour vodka into cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice. SHAKE! SHAKE! SHAKE! COLD!COLD! COLD!
Re: Vermouth – Tom thinks setting the bottle of Vermouth next to the cocktail shaker is more than the attention it deserves. Strain into chilled glasses letting just a few of the slivered ice chips slip through. Pop in the skewered olives with Gorgonzola.
Enjoyed best by Tom al fresco on the patio!
And BA-DA-BING BA-DA BOOM!!
