Here’s a rather dramatic, somewhat gothic alternative to the old martini.
- 2 ounces white rum
- 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
- 1 black olive, for garnish
- 1Place a cocktail glass in the freezer to chill.
- 2Place the rum and vermouth in a cocktail shaker and fill it halfway with ice. Stir vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted. Strain into the chilled glass and garnish with the olive.
