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 at 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?
