This is one of my favourite drinks, and there is nothing better than gettin home from work on a Friday evening and sitting on our front porch, lighting a cuban cigar and sipping on a vodka martini.
Fill a martini glass with ice and leave it to cool. Meanwhile spike the three olives onto a cocktail skewer. Add the vodka and vermouth to a cocktail shaker and top with lots of ice, shake vigorously until the vodka has chilled. Discard the ice in the martini glass, strain in the martini mixture and add the olive garnish.
