a little cocktail from my valentine
I just have to share my valentine gift from my husband, who just so happens to know what I like.
Behold, the Valentine Martini:
2 parts gin (in this case a small batch called 'Dry Fly' from Washington)
1 part kalamata olive juice
pour over ice in shaker and shake until outside of shaker feels ice cold
strain into a VERY COLD martini glass (these are from our good friend Barb Scalzi at North Wind Home Collection)
garnish with as many olives as will fit on the cocktail skewer...then sit across from your favorite valentine and enjoy.
make sure your close enough to play footsie, that's the best.
