This past week, I went to an event with a martini bar… it reminded me of how wonderful this classic cocktail can be.
There are MANY variations, but here is one of my favorites:
- 6 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Olive Juice
- 1 dash Dry Vermouth
- 2-3 Stuffed Olives
Place vodka, olive juice and dry vermouth in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously.
Strain into a martini glass and garnish with olives.
I’m also a fan of blue cheese stuffed olives… use the last bits of blue cheese in your fridge and use a small knife to put them into green olives.
What is your favorite martini recipe?
