Garlic Mashed Potato Martini

It's taken me this long to get out of my drunken stupor caused by this very drink.  Ever since I heard that Lola's launched their own take on the mashed potato martini, I knew it was a must on my crazy to try list.

Sadly it didn't quite live up to my expectations.  The "mashed potato" part of the martini was just a play on the fact that it was made from potato vodka, and the "garlic" came from a slew of garlic stuffed olives thrown into the drink.   If anything it tasted more like a garlic dirty martini.

That said, it had taken a trip to Surly Goat's L.A. Beer Week & several pints of Maui Brewing Company to get me to the point where I was ready to even try this concoction.   I absolutely was less than ready for, really just straight vodka.  With Garlic.

If I were you, I'd stick with their slew of other amazing martinis, the Pumpkin one being one of my favorites.  And even though they're $11 a pop, the size more than makes up for it.  Plus Lola's has a ton of happy hours, you just have to time it right!
