This is a martini for olive lovers. Olives are a good source of vitamin E and are concentrated in monounsaturated fats. They are one of the most cited plants in literature and they may help reduce the intensity of hot flashes when women go through menopause. So, I cannot think of a better reason to load this cocktail recipe by Hank, full of green olives. It can be served on the rocks or chilled.

175ml vodka
1 dash dry vermouth
1 tablespoon brine from olive jar
4 stuffed green olives

In a mixing glass, combine vodka, dry vermouth, brine and olives. Pour into a glass over ice. Either drink on the rocks, or strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
