Sick of eating olives without the slightest trace of vodka? The erstwhile booze innovator at Oh, Bite It! has a solution in the form of "deep-fried dirty martinis," which pack the drink (olive and all) into crunchy, poppable bites.
While most of the site's deep-fried liquor creations involve soaking bits of pound cake in the chosen alcohol, this recipe is a bit more complicated. You'll first need to combine a jar of martini olives with 3oz of vodka and 1oz of vermouth in a large jar. (Important: make sure you include the olive juice.) After that's soaked overnight, you'll roll the bloated olives in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. Once they're covered, pop them in the deep fryer/hot oil until they're golden and let them cool. Pretty soon, you'll have a whole batch of mini martinis that would make Bogie proud. Enjoy responsibly.
