Do you order martinis mostly to eat the gin-soaked olive at the bottom of the glass? Then we have just the appetizer for you: boozy olives!

Soaking bright green olives in gin or vodka with a splash of vermouth recreates the briny, boozy magic at the bottom of a martini glass, without having to down a drink. It’s a fun twist on the usual marinated olive, and has us thinking about other cocktail-garnish-inspired appetizers. Rye-soaked oranges? Bloody-Mary-infused celery?

The forward-thinking ladies at Canal House originally published a recipe for martini-soaked olives last year, which inspired the recipe in Sunset below.
