Grilled Cheese Martinis

Grilled Cheese Martini: Yea or Nay?

Nobody doesn't like grilled cheese — but how about a grilled cheese martini? Between the Bread investigates.

I love sandwiches and cocktails — often together. But I've never eaten a grilled cheese and thought, "you know what would be good with this? A martini." Apparently, that comfort food and booze combo makes sense at Beecher's.

Now here's the really terrifying part: Beecher's isn't the first to mix up a grilled cheese martini. Clive's in Victoria, BC, makes one with grilled cheese rum.  

Would you dare order one?
