When you want to serve up something a little more sophisticated than the standard beer-and-wine combo.
2 ounces high quality vodka or gin
1 ounce green olive brine
½ ounce dry vermouth
First, rub the inside of a martini glass with a rosemary sprig. Set sprig aside, and chill glass for a minimum of 10 minutes. Combine ice, vodka or gin, vermouth, brine and the sprig you used to rub the glass in a cocktail shaker.
Add the olives and 2nd rosemary sprig into your chilled glass. Shake the liquid ingredients, and pour into glass.
