Hillary's Dirty Little Secret

When an interviewer asked Hillary Clinton to name something she carried with her at all times she responded, “hot sauce,” claiming that eating chiles boosted her immune system. Inspired by Clinton’s love for all things spicy and her favorite drink (a “Bond-style” vodka Martini), we created a spicy Martini with a touch of pickle brine to make a little dirty (like most politicians).
