Is a Martini Still a Martini Without an Olive?

If we keep it simple and keep it classy, there’s really nothing to ponder here.  The answer is an emphatic “NO!”

A glass of gin is an absurdity until you add the olive.  In fact, some believe that the olive is the best part of a martini.


Typically, martini drinkers savor the olive at the end of the drink.  Olives soak up some of the gin and vermouth, giving them a unique taste.


Always use fresh olives.  Old olives will ruin a martini.  In my opinion, the best olive to add to a martini is a blue cheese stuffed olive.  Mmmmm!


And don’t forget to use The Olive Express for your blue cheese stuffed olives.  Keep it simple.  Keep it classy.
