I'm mixing things up in a whole new way this week. I'm hosting Dirt & Noise's first ever 5:00 Fridays giveaway! Woo hoo! Yeehaw! Yowza! Please, people, try to contain your excitement. It's not even 5:00 yet.
As my regulars know (Warning, sidebar coming: Hey, bars have regulars, and so do I! Cool, eh?), I have a special affinity for Dirty Sue. Dirty Sue has changed my cocktail life. Let's just say I've come an awfully long way from the Virginia Gentleman bourbon mixed with ginger ale and occasional white zinfandel I drank college. Blech. Blech. Gag. I have featured Dirty Sue before, and continue to love the good ole Dirty & Noisy martini.
Dirty Sue, for those folks who aren't regulars...yet, is pure and fine olive juice. Just the juice. I use it in the obvious dirty martini. I also add a splash to my bloody mary (shhh...it's my secret ingredient, along with just a tish of dill pickle juice). The other night I even added Dirty Sue to my wok. Gasp! I did. Really. I sliced up some chicken sausage, tossed in diced fresh garlic, chopped red onions, slivers of red peppers, and pitted black olives. Splash of Dirty Sue, dribble of chicken broth, and voila! Dinner. Splendid with a cucumber salad and pita bread to sop up the divine sauce. As usual, I'm digressing. And now I'm hungry.
So on to today's giveaway...
2, count 'em 2, bottles of Dirty Sue and a Dirty Sue T-shirt! Mac Daddy and I have T-shirts, and trust me, they are way awesome. Mine red one is particularly kicky and make my boobs look fantastic.
All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me which Dirty Sue recipe is going to be your new favorite. I'll let random.org do the rest. The winner will be announced on next week's 5:00 Fridays post. So go ahead, check it out. Pass it on. Tweet it. Facebook it. What? You don't tweet or use friend as a verb? Well then, we gotta talk. But not today. I have drinks to shake.
And if you don't want to roll the dice, go here to buy your own Dirty Sue. Also, Amazon.com over there in my sidebar has a great deal on four bottles. Stock up, friends.
And now, a special deal for Dirt & Noise readers only: If anyone wants to order six or 12 bottles, contact Eric at email@example.com, mention Dirt & Noise for a spectacularly deep discount.
Bartenders love it. I love it. What more do you need? And for the record, I'm not getting paid for this giveaway. I just happen to love the stuff and want to share the goods with my crew.
Cheers to your favorite Dirty Sue recipe! Mwah!
