For all those big dreamers, a martini made with Velveeta cheese is no longer just a pie-in-the-sky idea.

It’s called the “Velveeta Veltini,” and it’s now available exclusively during “golden hour” at select restaurants in Chicago and nationwide, for a limited time only. And according to a press release, the cocktail hedonistically encourages martini-loving — and cheese-loving — patrons to go ahead and indulge.

“This unexpected, yet delicious cocktail served in a luxurious martini glass furthers the brand’s latest creative platform ‘La Dolce Velveeta’, which is to step out in a confident and unapologetic way to show the world that you’re alive. a life filled with outrageous pleasures,” the statement said.

So what’s in the Velveeta Veltini? Here is a breakdown:

  • Velveeta Infused Vodka
  • Olive brine
  • Vermouth

The cocktail is then “garnished with drop of cheese and a cocktail of Velveeta and Jumbo stuffed olives Velveteta Shells & Cheese for the finishing touch.”

Once you’re ready to live like there’s no tomorrow, you can order the Velveeta Veltini at Florentine in Chicago daily from 5-8 p.m. or order a Veltini kit from Goldbelly. The cocktail will cost you $15 and the kit will cost you $50.
