This cocktail comes across as a misguided attempt to combine a Strawberry Daiquiri with a Martini. Something like this could only happen in the 80s, I'm betting. I'm glad I tried it with Filibuster gin with it's unassuming presence--very mellow when you need it to be, rich when served up.

The thing is, I don't want blended ice or strawberry puree in my Martini, thank you. And there's this issue with the seeds...the Bloodhound is just wrong on many levels. The name, though is fitting.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 3 strawberries halved and stemmed
Combine all ingredients in a blender with cracked ice and blend until slushy but not watery. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
