Vodka Martini with a Lemon Twist

Vodka Martini with Lemon Twist

Chill martini glass before mixing (optional)

1 green olive (pitted, rinsed)
1 dash dry vermouth
1 handful ice cubes
1/4 cup vodka

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
Shake and pour into a martini glass or substitute a small clear glass.
Peel a thin slice of lemon rind about 2.5” long for garnish.

Chive Blossom Martini

Try a new twist.  In place of the lemon, add a chive blossom. A delicious alternative.
