Ultimate Dirty Martini with Cheese Pairings​

It's hard to say what's the star of our Ultimate Dirty Martini. It could be the perfect proportions of vodka or gin, dry vermouth, and olive juice, stirred over ice to create a briny, bracing sip. It could be Losada's Gordal Olives, enormous and meaty and stuffed with blue cheese for good measure. Or it could be the cheese pairings, expertly selected to stand up to this boozy bev—silky, lightly funky L’Affiné au Chablis, classic, punchy Point Reyes Original Blue, and meaty, woodsy Greensward. Mix up this perfect cocktail for friends for a classy evening, or enjoy on your own to end the day in a delicious way.
