I hear there is some big movie opening today. I’m not a big Bond fan, but I cannot deny that Daniel Craig is worth staring at for a couple of hours.
Alton Brown decided to celebrate with the perfect martini on his Facebook page
Skyfall – Midnight Tonight
Fill a martini glass with some crushed ice and set aside.
Set one cup of crushed ice into a cocktail shaker.Pour in a 1/2 ounce of vermouth and swirl it around, making as much contact as possible with the ice.
Using a strainer, pour the vermouth out.
Add 2 1/2 ounces of gin and stir well to combine.
Remove the ice from the chilled glass and add 1 olive.
Using the strainer, pour the gin into the serving glass.Cheers!
Sure, you can have anything you want for breakfast! This one has pinto beans cooked with ancho and chipotle chili powders and a bit of smoked ham hock. Rolled up with the beans is a fair handful of shredded cheddar that melted nicely. It’s plated with hot sauce and crumbled queso fresco with a sprinkle of diced sweet peppers for a garnish. Those fresh habaneros are pretty, but deadly. I think if one was diced finely and cooked with the beans the result would be hot but bearable.
