Pro Dirty Vodka Martini

If you are feeling like treating yourself or the lady to a very special drink, want to impress your boss, or simply find that your usual Dom Pérignon is not classy enough.. this drink is for you. More expensive and time consuming to shop for and create than a usual Dirty Martini, but infinitely more rewarding

You will need:
3 oz ice cold Absolut or Grey Goose vodka.
½ tsp (2.5ml) Noilly Pratt vermouth
3 bleu cheese stuffed olives
3 toasted almond slivers
1 fancy, short cocktail stick
pre-chilled shaker half filled with ice cubes
pre-chilled cocktail glass

Pour the vodka into the shaker. Let it stand while you pour the vermouth into your chilled cocktail glass. Swirl it around a few times to cover the entire inside in a thin layer and then pour out the rest. Shake the vodka well and strain it into your cocktail glass. Take the almond slivers and slide one into each olive, then spear the three olives on the cocktail stick. Slide the speared olives into the cocktail glass so they are resting elegantly along one side with the top of the stick remaining above the surface. Enjoy.

Prepare this in front of your guests, or close to them so that they see how delicate a creation their drink goes through. Prepare first so you know what you are doing and don't screw up in front of them.
You can use Absolut Peppar instead of normal vodka. In this case, lose the almonds and bleu cheese stuffed olives and use jalapeño stuffed olives instead.
