Blue Diesel Martini

Here's a high octane martini that seems to have the sweet/bitter aroma of a machine shop, thanks mostly to the tequila and Jack Daniels. To keep that feel and make it more palatable, coconut rum and orange flavors are used to create a drink that's masculine and delicious. If it were edible, I think I'd rim the glass with black tractor grease. ;)
  • 2 oz Silver Tequila
  • 2 oz Jack Daniels
  • 1 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
  • 1 oz Blue Curacao
  • Black Olives
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake the liquid ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass and garnish with skewered black olives. For extra flair, use a long thin stainless steel hex bolt as the skewer.
