The Ultimate (in my opinion of course) Martini garnish.......

Here is my beverage of choice.......Stoli Martini Up (No Vermouth so just stoli chilled) Bond style (shaken not stirred) with the ultimate garnish in my opinion Tomolives!!

Few if any bars that I know of serve these delectable little pickled cherry tomatoes. You have to look in the mixers section of your liquor store to find the small discrete bottle of this pickled wonderfulness. Obviously I’m normally an olive garnish person but since finding Tomolives I’m surprised they haven’t become more main stream. How many of my fellow martini people out there have had the pleasure of enjoying this as a garnish? I find them to be far superior flavoring match to the vodka than just the brine/salt combination of olives. I wish more bar’s / lounges would catch on to this and start carrying them. Enough with the blue cheese stuffed olives and give us some Tomolives!
