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.
- 2 oz gin
- 2 tsp dry vermouth
- 1 rosemary sprig
- pitted olives
- 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.
