dirty martini

BOIO22 Basil Oil


  • 375 milliliters dry vermouth, preferably Noilly Prat
  • ½ cup chopped Cerignola olives
  • 1 ½ ounces navy-strength gin, preferably Perry’s Tot
  • A few drops of Il Boschetto Italian Lemon Infused Olive Oil
  • Mixed olives, for serving



  1. Combine vermouth and chopped olives in a sealed glass container and let sit for 3 days. Shake periodically.
  2. Chill a cocktail glass by filling it with ice or putting it in the freezer for about 5 minutes.
  3. In a mixing glass filled three-quarters full with ice, pour the gin and 1 1/2 ounces of the infused vermouth. Stir until chilled, about 30 seconds, and strain into the chilled glass. Carefully drip a few drops of olive oil (with an eye-dropper, if possible) onto the drink’s surface. Serve with a small dish of mixed olives.
