This is not actually in my glass, because I lapped it down all too quickly.
I woke up to rain this morning & it rained all day long. In an attempt to entertain myself, I was forced to resort to housework, something I only do to remain an acceptable human being. Finally, at dusk, the rain let up. The dogs & I went for a long walk. I came home and realized it was easily cocktail o'clock,
Because I have barely a splash of Hendrick's left, but also know that there is some on the way due to my pouncing on a deep discount offer, I thought I should avail myself of a heftier than usual evening drink.
Thus I made myself something I dubbed "The Kon-Tiki" ~ three ounces (!) of Hendrick's + an ounce of Cinzano extra dry + @3/4 ounce water shaken with many mini ice cubes. Poured that into a chilled martini glass, then dropped in two anchovy stuffed olives and floated in a raft of 5 tiny cucumber spears on a toothpick. Added some mini cubes and enjoyed the heck out of it.
I just had a nice little martini with Bombay Sapphire, Cinzano Extra Dry, & one pimento-stuffed olive. This was to recover from having gone to Costco and because I'm having lunch at an odd time on a rainy day & thought the martini was called for.
