Senior Food Editor Mary-Frances Heck gives her tips on the best olives to use for martinis.
Cerignola olives are the biggest olives you'll ever find in a martini. It's much larger and meatier. It makes a great snack and you can kind of nibble on it as you drink. See how big this thing is? It's like a steak. Queen olives are the perfect martini olive. They have a clean brininess, and the liquid they come in is perfect for making a dirty martini Queen olives can be stuffed with jalapenos, garlic and even blue cheese. Castelvetrano olives are the next step up. They are a little sweet, they are still a little briny, and they got their pits. Castelvetrano olives will amp up your martini because they bring a little more flavor to the table and they have a delicious texture. Cheers. [MUSIC] [MUSIC]
