While getting drunk on WuWus last weekend, Bwog had a moment of genius. We realized that the Deantini, though a fabulous nickname, had the potential to be something more. And by something more, we meant more alcoholic. We turned to Drinking with Bwog all-stars Elliott Grieco, Matt Kalish, and Nick Miyares for help. Our only instruction? “Valentini tells us he enjoys Campari.” Here’s what they came up with (their first original drink on Bwog!):
This drink honors our beloved, newly-nicknamed Deantini. Since we’re all Deantini fans here at the CBA, we took Bwog’s challenge and made it personal. After hours of experimenting with our dean’s most favorite of potent potables, we’ve come up with something that we think you’re really going to like.
The Deantini (a.k.a. The Dirty Valentini):
3.5 oz Grey Goose Vodka
0.5 oz Campari
Splash of Olive Juice
Shake with ice, serve straight up, and garnish with an olive.
Note: The word “dirty” in mixology indicates a splash of olive juice added to a regular martini. It is in no way meant to describe our new dean ;).
