Then, when I was making bone broth from my turkey carcass last Thanksgiving suddenly a light bulb went on over my head. I could make a Bullshot using turkey broth instead of beef and put Thanksgiving dinner on the cocktail pick!
What's a BULLSHOT?
A Bullshot is a cocktail made with beef broth and vodka, it was a popular drink at brunch back in the days of the fern bars. I hadn't thought of a Bullshot in years, they went out of fashion about the time the fern bars disappeared, but once the memory floated up to my conscious brain I realized it would be a great inspiration for my "turkey" martini. Instead of a gravy martini I could do a broth martini!
I used bacon vodka in place of the plain vodka called for in a classic Bullshot, made a poultry seasoning rim instead of adding celery salt and replaced the beef bouillon with low salt turkey (or chicken) bone broth, BUT the whole key to this savory thanksgiving meal martini is the garnish.
When you finish your Turkey Day Dinner Cocktail, you can slide right into the Pumpkin Pie Martinis for dessert.
Now you really can DRINK YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER.
