Smoked Rosemary Olive Oil Martini

  • Author: Ashley Rose Conway


 My little twist on the classic cocktail is the smoked rosemary olive oil. It may sound peculiar to dash in some oil to a cocktail, but trust me it works here! 


  • 2 1/2 oz dry gin
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • 1 bar spoon olive juice, I used some from a jar of Castelvetrano olives
  • few drops smoked rosemary olive oil (recipe below)
  • rosemary sprig and olive, garnish


Make the smoked rosemary oil a day or so in advance. Add ice to the drinking glass you will be using to chill it. In a mixer glass, add the gin, vermouth, and olive juice to a mixing glass. Add ice to fill the glass 3/4 of the way. Using a bar spoon, mix for 30 seconds. Dump the ice from the drinking glass. With a hawthorn strainer, strain the martini into the chilled glass. Finish with a few drops of the infused oil. Garnish with rosemary sprig and olive.


Smoked Rosemary Oil

  • 1/2 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 stalks rosemary

Place a glass jar on it’s side. Place the rosemary stalks into the jar. Using a lighter, light the rosemary stalks. continuing doing this a few times up and down the stalks. Quickly turn the jar right side up and add the olive oil. Let the rosemary infuse for a couple days. Discard the rosemary and your olive oil is ready to use.
