Travel Trailering and Three Olives Cake Batter Martini with MILK!

Hey, did you realize the 19th of June is National Martini Day?!!  I hadn't until I received an email from Three Olives Vodka cluing me in.....Oh. Yeah.

I figure since we'll be camping out in this most of the week,

why not class it up a bit by celebrating Martini Day than with one of Three Olive's signature martinis......Campfire Martini.

Here's what you need for success:

Campfire Martini

  • 3 parts Three Olives S'mores Vodka
  •  Crushed graham crackers, chocolate syrup, marshmallows
  • Dip the rim of martini glass in chocolate syrup and coat with crushed graham crackers.
  • Pour Three Olives S'mores into martini shaker filled with ice.
  • Shake and strain into martini glass.
  •  Garnish with a skewer of three toasted marshmallows!

And not to be out done.....have you ever tried a martini containing milk?  Me either.  Check THIS out....

Cake Batter Martini

  • 1 1/2 oz. Three Olives Cake Vodka 
  •  1 oz. White Chocolate Liqueur 
  •  2 oz. Milk 
  •  Shake with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. 
  •  Rim glass with vanilla frosting and multi-colored sprinkles!
So if you happen to find me this week.....I may be willing, able and have the supplies to whip one of these bad boys up for you.


A little info on Three Olives:

Inspired by the classic vodka martini served with a garnish of olives, Three Olives launched as a non-flavored vodka brand in 1998 and became a pioneer of the flavored-vodka market when it introduced the first-ever cherry and grape varieties in 2001.
Acquired by Jersey City, N.J.-based Proximo Spirits in 2007, the super-premium vodka brand now offers over 20 different flavors that have fueled a three-fold increase in sales to nearly 1.5 million cases from half a million.
As implied by the brand’s other popular flavors - Cake, Bubble, Dude and S’mores - Three Olives delivers one-of-a-kind drinks that appeal to polished individuals who revel in their uniqueness; they are clever, witty, and loath to take themselves too seriously.  
Three Olives Vodka is imported from England where it is harvested from wheat and undergoes quadruple distilling to produce a smooth texture that is easy on the palette, without burn or strong alcohol taste. The brand’s flavored 70-proof vodka is 35 percent alcohol and its 80-proof clear vodka is 40 percent alcohol, appealing both to newer consumers who like to socialize and those over 35 years old who relish quiet moments.  
Natural fruits are infused into most of the flavored varieties to render a unique flavor that continues to attract new brand followers. Three Olives also lends itself readily to cocktail mixing, blending easily with lemon lime soda, fruit juices, club soda, or one or two more nuanced mixers.
