Parfait! Dirty Martini Cheese Spread

You need this recipe to help you get through the holidaze.

Cream cheese, olives, a dab o’ mayonnaise, a few other tasty bits, and then…

Vodka!

What part of martini did you not get?

Though, I guess you might could substitute gin, or mebbe go all Geronimo (my all time fave martini) and add both.

Hmmm.

Just pausing to contemplate a Tito’s and Bombay Sapphire martini this sunny Friday morning…

Anywho, you also could skip the liquor entirely (I call this the “church” version), and you will still end up with a mighty fine cheese spread.

INGREDIENTS
Base:
•8 oz cream cheese, softened
•1 tbsp mayonnaise
•1/4 chopped green olives
•2 tbsp olive juice
•1/4 tsp black pepper
•1/4 tsp garlic powder

•1/4 tsp additional olive juice
•1/2 tsp olives

When ready to serve, pile into a nice martini glass  or two and serve with flat bread and crackers.
