Tipsy Olives –
Here’s a speedy and savory gift to make (or keep!). Any host or hostess would welcome these Tipsy Olives as a fine addition to their pantry, home bar or appetizer tray. Or make some for future holiday gifts. I winged it with this combination of ingredients. I figured if I liked all of these flavors individually, I would like them even more all swirling around in a jar filled with a nice dry vermouth. You can follow this guideline, or customize it for your own taste.
- green pitted olives
- a sprig or two of fresh rosemary
- a sprig of fresh thyme
- a peeled garlic clove
- 1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
- 1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
- enough dry vermouth to cover everything
Place all the ingredients in a glass jar with a fitted lid. Mix, cover, and refrigerate. Give it about a week to infuse.
