Martini
image
The traditional garnish for a Martini is an olive or a twist of lemon. An olive imparts a slightly bitter and salty flavour to the drink, while a twist offers a more citrusy finish. Always use a green olive in a Martini, and with or without pimento (the red stuff in the middle) is your choice. When using a twist of lemon peel, be sure to cut off all of the white pith, and bend the peel over the surface of the glass. Gently squeeze the peel so that the natural oils shoot out, coating the surface of the liquid, and then float it in the glass.
