1½ ounces vodka (extra bright and fruity variety)
2 drops olive juice, or brine
Splash of vermouth (optional)
½-1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil (fruity, grassy flavor)
1-2 blue cheese-stuffed green olives
In an ice filled cocktail shaker, combine vodka, olive juice and vermouth. Shake vigorously.
Strain into martini glass. Add olive oil and garnish with olives.
