The Buttertini is REAL!

ButtertiniOkay, so while we were enjoying Little K’s reactions on fear factor food night awhile back, we had some leftover lemon garlic butter from the lobster… and what better than to combine delicious buttery goodness with another favourite treat: alcohol!  So that’s exactly what we did… after googling to see if anyone else had beaten us to the weirdness 🙂 .  Turns out I could find no other internet indication of it’s existence (that didn’t involve butterSCOTCH) so onward we went. Used the butter remnants which, as mentioned, had lovely fresh squeezed lemon and fresh garlic in the mix, and combined it with Ketel One Vodka… the smoothest vodka I know (save your Grey Goose pleadings, I am a Ketel One convert! But use whatever high quality vodka is your preference.)

Mix a 1/2 to 3/4 ounce of the butter mixture, and again, the ratio of lemon, butter and garlic is up to your taste, with 1 to 1.5 ounces of vodka, which needs to be warm room temp if not a little warmer to keep the butter in a melted form.  No crushed ice in the shaker for this drink! Just shake well and pour! I would definitely serve it with some shrimp, crab or lobster for a tasty side of the glass accent to nibble while you consume. Hopefully you’ve stopped thinking “ew” by now and will give it a try… we dare ya!
