Olive Oil Martini

Shaken not stirred. This Olive Oil Martini is a fantastic recipe for a twist on a sophisticated classic and is aptly garnished with olive. Start by making your own Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Herb gin by simply infusing your favourite gin or whatever you've got at home. This can then be used for a lovely, aromatic Olive Oil Martini or even try it for a slightly different G&T afterwards!
