    I got a feel for the importance of the Olive in the Dirty Greek Martini which uses the special ingredient of the Klamata Olive to give the Greek-Like flavor. Using just any olive from the local supermarket (Salt Cured, Black, Green, Pimiento-filled, etc., etc.) seems to me to need a lot of testing to get a well balanced drink. Using Gin of different maker's messes with the flavor too. What is the correct type of olive for a consistently good Gin Martini? A Huge Olive makes the presentation look tawdry so what size is called for? Olive oil for Salad dressing or cooking may/does not flavor a "Slightly Dirty Gin Martini" in any sort of way to make it memorable or desirable, so where does the correct olive oil come from?
