Martini with Olives No.2

The martini cocktail is a drink associated with power, class, and of course James Bond. But its roots go much further back than that, to a drink very different from what's commonly found in today's 'Martini Bars'. The term 'martini' seems to be replacing 'cocktail' in common usage, so now there are hundreds of 'martini' recipes from classic martinis, flavored vodka martinis, dessert martinis to modern/trendy varieties that resemble the classic martini only in the type of glass used.

Martini with olive No.2 is painted in oils. I have a series of Martini paintings and thought that I would add the olives that I have been playing with lately to the mix. It seemed to be a good fit.
