After a meeting, we ended up at Palomino on San Francisco’s Embarcadero.The place is known for a great bar, wonderful bay views and innovative cocktails. Our server, Marsha, suggested I try this vodka martini flavored with a splash of 18 year old Glenlivet and Nolly Pratt Dry Vermouth. Not one to mix my vodka and whiskey, I was skeptical to say the least. Marsha ensured me it was tasty. She was right. The Scotch gave the cocktail a wonderful smoky flavor. Garnished with a pepperoni and a blue cheese stuffed olive this martini get a DOTW thumbs up.
3 oz Grey Goose vodka
