A Wednesday without a martini is like a day without... well, a martini. But I was out of olives, and didn't know what to do. After all, when a martini doesn't have a garnish it's really just a shot of chilled vodka (I skip the Vermouth). But you, Potscrubber, just saved me. I canned pickled okra last fall and needed to use it up. This is perfect, and delish!!! I think I love you.

Surfing through for an original martini blend this one caught my eye and that of my Son-in-law. We had the fixing and they were a big hit.

This recipe was right on time. I just had to try it. On my last visit to the liquor store, they had home canned Spicy Pickled Okra on the counter by the checkout. I asked my buddy that works there all about it, and he said that several customers had requested it. It is home canned from homegrown Okra, by a lady that lives here in the Florida Panhandle area bout 15 miles south of the AL line. I bought a jar for the next time we have Bloody Mary's, but when I saw this recipe, just had to try it. What a great Martini, the spicy okra gave it some zip, but wasn't overpowering. I will be making these on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!!

Considering my deep running White Trash roots, (pickled bologna served on the relish tray at every party my Grandma has ever thrown), it's no surprise I was drawn to this recipe. Combine that with my long-term relationship with Grey Goose, (actually I just affectionately call my good friend and confidante, "The Goose," and I simply had to try this. Thank you so much for spicing up the relationship with my old buddy. I see him in a whole new light. Don't get me wrong, The Goose has always done right by me. But,how much fun is a White Trash Dirty Goose?

Totally loved it! I have put pickled okra in my martinis in the past, but never used the brine - Brilliant! I was out of Grey Goose so I used Chopin - Excellent! Even KC liked it!!! Thanks Pottsie!!!
