1 1/2 to 2 ounces dry Champagne, Prosecco or other sparkling wine

Dry Gin Martini with blue-cheese stuffed olives:

2 ounces gin
Splash of vermouth
Splash of the olive juice from the jar
2 blue cheese stuffed olives - you buy them already stuffed or simply cram crumbled blue cheese into a couple olives
