How To Make Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil Martini From Olives

Categories: The Daily Shot

Today's cocktail recipe comes to us from Todd English over at Olives in Union Square. The Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil Martini is a specialty cocktail that's one of its more popular drinks. It doesn't have the thick, oily feel you might expect. There's a sort of robust freshness that comes with it.

The drink: Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil Martini

The bar: Olives

The price: $15

The ingredients: One orange segment, three to five fresh basil leaves, 3 ounces vodka, 1/2 ounce dry vermouth, 1/2 ounce Cointreau, 1/4 ounce simple syrup, 1/4 ounce Chilean extra virgin olive oil (CEVOO)

The process: In a shaker, muddle orange segment and basil leaves. Add vodka, Cointreau, dry vermouth, simple syrup, and CEVOO. Then add ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass and float a drop of CEVOO over the top.
