    LilPinkieJ's Note:

    My favorite kind of martini is one that I can eat more than drink! This is not one of those quicky drinks to throw together, but rather it is one you plan a bit for a party or dinner. I found this fabulous little drink online while researching the Greek food of Saganaki which is a fried cheese dish that can be served in various ways. I suggest that you paste the word Saganaki into the search above and check out some of the different styles the great Zaar chefs have here.

    Martini

    Candied Olives

    Saganaki

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make the Martini:.
    2. 2
      Place the tomatoes, garlic, basil and mint in a blender and process until smooth. Strain using a fine sieve - don't press on the mixture, let it happen naturally. It will take a few hours to give you the required 2 cups of liquid.
    3. 3
      The original recipe said to 'Throw away the remaining solids', but I add them to the bag I have in the freezer to make soup stock with. Add Gin to taste. Place this in the fridge to chill until ready to serve.
    4. 4
      Make the Candied Olives:.
    5. 5
      Preheat the oven to 200°F Place the finely chopped olives on a baking paper lined tray and sprinkle with the caster sugar. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the olives are dried.
    6. 6
      Prepare the Haloumi:.
    7. 7
      Slice the cheese into 1/2 inch cubes and dust with a little flour. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the cheese over a medium heat - browning all sides. When cooked thread onto skewers.
    8. 8
      Assemble the dish:.
    9. 9
      Divide the diced Roma tomatoes, cucumber, candied olives and chives amongst four martini glasses, then pour over with the chilled martini mixture. Add the haloumi skewers and serve immediately.
