Ode to olives

I am a martini drinker. I call my concoction of Bombay Sapphire Gin and Noilly Prat Vermouth "mother's milk." There's nothing like a martini to take the edge right off. Of course the perfect garnish for the martini is the olive. Over the past few years I have experimented with many types of olives. There is the good old standby of the standard pimento-stuffed olive. I prefer the nice big queen olives. I then discovered the joy of jalapeno-stuffed olives. The nice spicy kick goes wonderfully with the gin. Then there was the garlic-stuffed olives. I love the taste of garlic, but I grow tired of the taste after awhile. They are a nice change of pace, however. At one point they even made olives stuffed with both garlic and jalapeno. I also like cocktail onions in my martini. But then it would not be a martini. It would be a gibson. I did not worry about what to call my drink, however, when I tried the onion-stuffed olives. Then the other day I spotted something at the grocery store as I was going to replenish my olive supply. Blue cheese-stuffed olives. Oh my! I bought them and took them home. I had to try one immediately. The oil from the cheese made the little buggers extremely slippery. I popped one into my mouth and savored the flavor. *bliss* Oh yes. My martini experience will be enhanced in the days to come.
