Stir It Up :: Olive-Rosemary Martini

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted a Thirsty Thursday, so I apologize.  With the holidays coming up on us (seriously, one week until Thanksgiving? Where did 2010 go?), I thought I would share this unconventional (to me, at least) drink I spotted on one of my favorite websites, Martha Stewart.  It's called the Olive-Rosemary Martini.  I have no idea what it tastes like, but the fact that it has rosemary, I'm sure it smells very festive.

Olive-Rosemary Martini


  • 2 oz gin
  • 2 tsp dry vermouth
  • 1 rosemary sprig
  • pitted olives


  1. To make, shake 2 ounces gin and 2 teaspoons dry vermouth with crushed ice; strain into a stemmed glass. Strip leaves from bottom 2 inches of a rosemary sprig, skewer through pitted olives, and add to the drink.
