Debate Night Martini™

Here is a great recipe to drink while watching the last debates of 2015. 

Take a sip when the candidates attack each other, or when Donald Chump says make America great again.

4 - 6 oz. vodka or gin
1/2  oz. olive juice 
1 - 1  1/2 oz. dry vermouth 
squeeze of lime 
salt, pepper
8 olives

With a wet napkin, wet the rims of 4 martini glasses. 

Sprinkle some salt and pepper on a shallow dish. 

Place the glasses rim side down on the salted dish to coat.

Place the glasses in the freezer to chill for a few minutes. 

In a cocktail shaker combine: gin or vodka, ice, olive juice, lime juice, vermouth. 

Shake for a few seconds to mix. 

Remove glasses from freezer, strain martinis into glasses. Thread olives through 4 toothpicks.

Garnish martinis with the olives.

Serves 4.
