Local source for - Old South brand "tomolives"
Fellow Hounds -
Especially the drinkers among you. A friend of mine recently mixed up a swell gin martini and used Old South brand "tomolives" (small, pickled tomatoes) in place of the green olives. I was floored and have made it my mission to score a bottle. Does anyone know of a place in NoVA (Arl; Falls Church; Alexandria; etc)/DC/MD (close in) that carries them? I suppose they don't have to be Old South so any other brand will do.
Seen that brand around local liquor stores before (in TX), I can't imagine it is too difficult to find it if you scour major grocery stores. How dry was the martini? I like a rinse of vermouth and a real dry gin and am trying to imagine what the comparison would be to olives. Maybe the tomolives would pair nicely with Hendrick's gin, the hint of cucumber seems pleasing.
