Dirty cheater martini

I love olives, so it's no surprise I'm a big fan of dirty martinis. But since I'm a notorious lightweight, I try to limit myself to one (two if I must), and I tend to make them a little less powerful than most. When I mixed this one the other night, I didn't want to open a bottle of vermouth, so I cheated.

Dirty cheater martini

1 1/2 oz. Cold River Vodka
1 oz. Divina olive brine
1 oz. Stirrings Spanish olive brine
3 Divina green olives stuffed with sweet peppers

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with olives.
