Bleeding Heart Martini
Keep up the fear factor with a Bleeding Heart martini, a drink with a pickled beet that "bleeds" from a would caused by a cocktail spear.
- 2 ounces dry vermouth
- 8 ounces premium gin
- Ice cubes
- 4 Pickled Baby Beets, each placed on a cocktail skewer
Chill 4 martini glasses in the freezer or fill with ice water and let sit until frosty, about 5 minutes (pour out water). Add the vermouth, dividing evenly; swirl to coat the glasses, then pour out. Add gin to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until chilled; divide among chilled glasses. Garnish each with a skewered pickled baby beet, and serve immediately.
