Waves of cobwebs are still hanging around my house. I could argue that Dia de los Muertos comes right after Halloween so there was no rush to take them down, but I’m fresh out of excuses for leaving them up the rest of this week. I guess I have cobwebs in my brain, too, or maybe it’s just a Halloween hangover! Sounds like I need a Gartini (hair of the werewolf, so to speak) to clear my mind.
I’ll need a clear mind when we start judging Christopher Ranch’s Halloween Display Contest. The last of the entries are coming in today and I’ll be posting some of our favorites after the winners are announced. Always glad to keep my favorite holiday going well after the goblins are gone!
Now for that Gartini! This recipe is by Celebrity Chef and Food Consultant, Wendy Brodie. Thanks, Wendy, it’s garlicious!
2 1/2 oz. vodka
1 1/2 tsp. dry vermouth
1 garlic stuffed olive
1 clove Christopher Ranch Pickled Garlic
½ tsp. fresh lime juice
Combine vodka and vermouth in a cocktail shaker half filled with ice. Add lime juice and stir very well. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with the olive and garlic clove. Serve while ice cold.
