“We wanted to create a unique signature serve for our bar,” says Alex Boon, creator of this Sea & Shell recipe and co-owner of Pearl Diver Cocktails & Oysters in Melbourne.

“While coming up with the serve we had the idea to turn an olive into an oyster and went about creating it. What we ended up with was this amazingly complex Martini that was served alongside an olive you eat as an oyster, celebrating the ritual of oysters and Martinis.”
