4 tablespoons of olive oil

3 garlic cloves, cut in vertical halves

1 teaspoon black peppercorns

2 tablespoons citrus peels

3 tablespoons gin

½ cup green olives

Fresh rosemary or thyme


Add olive oil to a small saucepan. Add garlic and bring to medium heat. Sauté to release on low-medium heat being careful not to brown the garlic.

Stir in peppercorns, citrus peels and herbs. Continue to cook for two minutes.

Remove the olives from the heat and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Serve warm with your favourite gin cocktail.
