The Pepperoncini Martini, Saute( Barbara Haddock Taylor/Baltimore Sun / February 15, 2012 )
How to Make a Pepperoncini Martini
1.5 oz. Grey Goose vodka
1 tbsp. pepperoncini juice
Pour liquor and pepperoncini juice in a martini shaker with ice. Shake well. Serve straight up, garnish with a pepperoncini.
In Saute in Canton, you'll find the salty and sassy Pepperoncini Martini. Owner and bartender Terri Carey says the Pepperoncini Martini is one of her favorites as well (to drink and to make) because "it's such a conversation piece." She's talking about the presentation: served neatly in a stemless glass, the clear, clean liquor is garnished with a full-sized pepperoncini that floats daringly in the center.
