Grilled Cheese Martini: Yea or Nay?

July 28, 2011 7:36 pm · Posted by Nancy Einhart

I love sandwiches and cocktails — often together. But I've never eaten a grilled cheese and thought, "you know what would be good with this? A martini." Apparently, that comfort food and booze combo makes sense Beecher's.

The Seattle cheese emporium, which recently opened in NYC, has an off-menu item called the grilled cheese martini, which is exactly what it sounds like: grilled cheese sandwich-infused vodka, shaken with fresh tomatoes, muddled basil, and tomato juice.

Now here's the really terrifying part: Beecher's isn't the first to mix up a grilled cheese martini. Clive's in Victoria, BC, makes one with grilled cheese rum.  Would you dare order one?

I'm kind of into this idea, actually! Something about savory cocktails has been so appealing to me lately. But the question is: do you pair it WITH a grilled cheese? Or is that getting ridiculous?

I think it sounds amazing! I want one right now.

My husband and I concur that that's just gross. When I described it to him he grimaced.

A grilled cheese sandwich is all about texture. This idea, while clever, just isn't doin' it for me.

I actually dry heaved at the concept. Apparently my gag reflex is dramatic.

I'm baffled that this exists, and yet undeniably tempted by it.
