2/3 cup seltzer water

12 pimento-stuffed martini olives, plus 3 tablespoons olive juice

One 1/4-ounce package unflavored gelatin (about 2 1/2 teaspoons)

1 cup vodka or gin

1/3 cup dry vermouth


  1. Combine the seltzer water and olive juice in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and leave it to bloom for 5 minutes.
  2. Microwave the bloomed gelatin mixture until dissolved, about 30 seconds. Stir in the vodka or gin and dry vermouth. Divide the mixture among twelve 2-ounce glasses and place an olive in each glass. Refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours.
