No thank you — I’m a grilled cheese kinda gal.
Always have been; just ask my family. When we went to a diner and everyone else ordered burgers, I had the grilled cheese. When we splurged at a really nice restaurant, I ordered — to my mother’s consternation — the grilled cheese.
Even now, when I check out a new restaurant and they have an interesting take on my cheesy favorite on the menu…it’s really hard for me to order anything else.
It is, quite simply, the perfect sandwich…a taste of home between two slices of bread.
And now a bartender in Victoria, British Columbia has attempted to capture the essence of the grilled cheese sandwich in a signature cocktail.
This could finally turn me on to liquor.
He combines “grilled cheese rum” — Mt. Gay’ washed’ overnight with a real-live grilled cheese sandwich — fresh-muddled tomato and basil, salt, Lillet Blanc and Glenfiddich Scotch whiskey.
I can’t tell a thing from the recipe…although the fact that he actually marinades his rum in a grilled cheese sandwich seems promising. Plus, the martini is only served at Clive’s in Victoria, B.C.
Haven’t had a grilled cheese sandwich there yet…
