Buckeye Martini

Of course this Martini variation is just trying to point out the interesting look of a cocktail made with a black olive as a garnish. It has nothing to do with The Ohio State Buckeyes. That didn't stop me from breaking out my OSU paraphernalia for this photo.

I used Magnus & Co. Vigilant gin and Mancino vermouth, which made this gin Martini extremely spicy and interesting. The last sip involving taking down the olive was wonderfully rich and very different from a green olive's flavor.
  • 3 oz. gin (Jos. A. Magnus Vigilant used)
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth (Mancino used) 
  • black olive
Stir liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with black olive.
