I agree tadcar. And it's got to be 3 olives :)

Vodka is a wonderful beverage, delicious in many cocktails and everyone should drink what they like. Still,a Martini is made with gin. They call it a Vodka Martini to differentiate it from a Martini. A vodka martini is so named as are other martini-like cocktails i.e. Apple tini and others. Classy bartender in that video. Dapper, starched jacket and great mustache. Nice panache with the shaking too!
