Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives
2 Tablespoons gin
2 Tablespoons vermouth
1 Tablespoon of the olive brine from the pimiento-stuffed green olives
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
5 (1/4-inch wide) strips lemon peel, each about 3-inches long


Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive dish and cover tightly.

Allow olives to marinate at least 2 to 3 hours or up to 4 days in the refrigerator. (If you are only marinating them for a few hours, leave the olives in the marinade at room temperature.)

Note: These olives are great in martinis and also double as a quick party hors d'oeuvre. If you plan on using them exclusively as an hors d'oeuvre, drizzle a little extra-virgin olive.
