Hear us out: Everything bagels and booze are an underrated combo. But forget the generous schmear of cream cheese. While you’re at it, lose the bagel, too. Everything bagel spice—an umami-rich, crunchy blend of poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion and salt—is the martini rim garnish we didn’t know we needed.
Not convinced? Skeptics should tune their attention to Las Vegas’s Vanderpump À Paris, which features Le Dirty Bleu, an everything bagel spice-rimmed dirty gin martini complete with blue cheese-stuffed olives. It’s a super savory drink ideal for those allergic to saccharine-sweet cocktails.
