Horseradish Beef Martini

January 12th, 2011 - 9:30pm by Slye Fox

In an effort to utilize the Horseradish Vodka that Jessica gave me a while ago, I started experimenting with different flavors based on the idea the drink might make a great dinner accompaniment. With a simmering pot of beef stew on the stove, I embarked on my quest...

After trying numerous additives, I decided that orange really went well with the horseradish sharpness. Although probably not a drink you'd like to have on its own, this Horseradish Martini goes brilliantly with any hearty beefy dinner. Be it steak, stew, or anything else meat related you can imagine.

  • 2 oz Horseradish Vodka
  • 2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz Absolut Peppar
  • a pinch of Lawry's Salt
  • Fresh Peppercorns in a Mill
  • Chunk of Marinated Slow Cooked Beef

Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake all liquid ingredients with the salt and the ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into the glass. Grind peppercorns onto the drink and slice a marinated piece of tender cubed beef to adorn the glass rim.

Note - as indicated above, this martini is meant to accompany a beef meal. Whatever your preference, slice a cube out of the beef and use as garnish. In this case, I made a delightful winter stew with carrots, potatoes, and steak then stole a chunk of the meat for the garnish. The flavors of all compliment beautifully!

How is it that I just ate breakfast, and that already sounds so damn good?

It's excellent! But like I said, it's much better as a dinner drink than a standalone. Unless you really like horseradish.
