Daring Pairings- Cocktails and Cheese
We've got a long standing camaraderie with Nic's Martini Lounge and Restaurant in Beverly Hills.Larry Nicola's our friend in the ongoing pursuit of good food, good wine, good spirits...So you shouldn't be surprised to learn we are in cahoots on four martinis featuring cheese.

1. Wine & Cheese Martini: Idol Vodka (made from Chardonnay and Pinot grapes) with Pinot Noir juice, served up with a slice of Morbier cheese. Idol Vodka is a French vodka made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from Burgundy, France. Morbier is a creamy cow's milk cheese from Franche-Comte, France, characterized by the flavor of nuts and fruit and an aroma of fresh hay.The yellow-brown or pale gray rind is thick, moist and leathery with a creamy brown crust and the interior is comprised of two layers of glossy, yellowish-ivory paste, separated by a thin flavorless layer of ash, which separates the morning milking from the evening milking.

2. Maytag Repair Man: Skyy 90 Vodka served up with a Maytag Blue Cheese Stuffed Olive.

3. The Popes in Town: Mezzaluna Vodka served up, with blueberries and garnished with Gorgonzola. Mezzaluna is an Italian vodka made from Semolina grain.

4. What a Nice Pear You Have: Grey Goose La Poire Vodka. Add pear juice and top with a shave of Parmesan cheese
