Oscar Recipes: 'The Artist' Not So Silent Martini

The Artist Not-So-Silent Martinis : Makes 1
Equipment: one martini glass, one mixing glass, ice, spoon and a cocktail stick.

To crust the rim
1 tablespoon of popping candy
1 teaspoon of salt flakes
1 teaspoon of liquid glucose

For the martini
2 1/2 oz/ 70 ml gin
1 oz/ 30 ml Cointreau
3 black olives on a cocktail stick

1. Gloss the rim of the glass with a thin stripe of liquid glucose.
2. Combine the popping candy and salt on a dry plate. Rotate the rim of the glass through the pebbles to create a crust on the rim of the glass.
3. Carefully pour the Cointreau into the center of the glass (so as not to touch the popping candy) and swirl around.
4. Combine the gin with ice in a separate glass and stir to ensure it's well chilled. Strain the gin and pour carefully into the center of the martini glass.
5. Garnish with three black olives on a stick.
