How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass.


Olive on stick


F.D.R. Martini after the American president Franklin Delano Roosevelt.


This drink varies from delicious to disgusting, depending on the liquid in your jar of olives. Oil will provide a revolting emulsion: make sure that your olives are packed in brine.


Substitute vodka for gin.


Some attribute the creation of this drink to Roosevelt: the 32nd president was a keen home bartender, although his cocktails were reportedly 'horrendous' and there is no evidence that he used olive brine in his Martinis.
