So most people love cheese, but The Velveeta Martini has gone too far, and this isn’t even real cheese!
Can Velveeta actually be mixed into a martini? Velveeta sure thinks so. And a steakhouse chain agreed enough to put it on their menu at $15 a pop.
Starting today, Velveeta has teamed up with the BLT Restaurant Group to release the Velveeta Veltini, billed as an “unapologetic, outrageously cheesy” spin on a martini. The cocktail will be served specifically between the hours of 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at five BLT-owned restaurants across the country, namely BLT Steak New York, BLT Steak Washington DC, BLT Steak Charlotte, and BLT Prime New York, as well as at their Italian concept The Florentine in Chicago.
The drink itself combines Velveeta-infused vodka (prepped by literally mixing Velveeta cheese sauce and vodka at least 24 hours before serving), olive brine, and vermouth into a martini glass which is then garnished with a cheese drip and a cocktail pick of Velveeta-stuffed olives and Jumbo Velveeta Shells & Cheese.
Would you try The Velveeta Martini?
