An Extra Virgin Cocktail

16evossckc1

I’m not sure how I feel about this. It’s a trio of extra virgin olive oil drops plunked down in the midst of a ‘Steady Cocktail’ – a fanciful take on the traditional martini (with some élixir végétal thrown in, and a small bowl of olives on the side). I like my cocktails on the dry shade of the spectrum, and as I get older I find myself leaning toward the savory over the sweet. (You won’t see me sipping from any sort of fruity/chocolatey/bullshit-tini monstrosity any time soon.) In this instance, those three drops threw me for a bit of a loop. They quickly coalesced into one larger pool of EVOO, and though such fleeting prettiness has a certain appeal, I’m not sure I liked the end result. Personal preference, of course, as all cocktails are, and maybe it’s just my stubborn refusal to open my mind to the idea of oil in my drink.
