Say Cheese: The Grilled Cheese Martini


It started as a joke, a link sent to me by a cheese-loving friend along with the word, ‘drool’. I clicked the link and read the headline, ‘Making of a Signature Drink: Beecher’s Grilled Cheese Martini’… wait, what? I read it again. Was this for real? I read through the article, my face contorting into an expression of great confusion. This was apparently a not-so-secret-anymore off-menu drink to be found at Beecher’s Cheese Kitchen in New York. It was… bizarre, to say the least. I wasn’t sure if I was turned on or disgusted but I knew one thing: I was going to have to make it.
