How do you make a Ham, Cheese and Tomato Toasted Sandwich Martini, you ask? Just do the following: soak a ham hock in a special Dutch gin for an hour, cool the gin to separate the fat, "warm" a Parmesan hunk in water with salt, add lecithin to the cheese-salt water, whip up the water to produce a Parmesan foam, "muddle" a tomato in a glass, add ham gin, shake the mixture over ice, strain it into a Champagne coupe, top the drink with the Parmesan foam. and lest we forget, "before sipping this cocktail, though, it's imperative to take a bite of buttered toast, in order to complete the experience."
