You know how I feel about my dirty martinis, but wait until you try this dirty martini DIP! It is over-the-top delicious, and is sure to be the hit of your holiday party.
8 ounces room temp cream cheese
5.5 ounces Blue Cheese, separated in half
1 cup sour cream (or even Creme Fraiche)
6 ounce jar of pitted Castelvetrano Olives, chopped (set a few aside to stuff with blue cheese as a garnish)
1/4 cup vodka (optional)
1 tbsp olive brine from olive jar
1/2 cup minced green onions or chives
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
Using a hand mixer, combine softened cream cheese, half of the blue cheese, sour cream, vodka, olive brine and spices.
Once combined, fold in MOST of the other half of the blue cheese (make sure to reserve a few blue cheese crumbles to stuff 3 olives and sprinkle on top) chopped olives and minced green onion.
Refrigerate in an airtight container for at least a few hours, even overnight.
Spoon into pretty martini glasses and garnish with stuffed olives.
Serve with crackers, veggies and dirty martinis!
