A classic from The Bartender’s Black Book.  I didn’t think I had any olives on hand as I am not a fan of them.  Turns out though I did have some Kalamata olives from the homemade tapenade.  They’re, of course, not the right olives for this drink but no matter I don’t think I’m a fan of the dirty martini any way.  The hubby, who doesn’t mind olives, finished it off for me this time.
