Pale Gray for Guilt

This is a new recipe of mine called Pale Gray for Guilt. This cocktail continues my series of Tequila cocktails named after the Travis McGee novels of American author John D. MacDonald. I have always like the Travis McGee novels, and the titles of these novels just seem to me to be particularly well suited to be also the names of great tequila cocktails.

Pale Gray for Guilt

1 1/2 oz  ice-cold Tequila
1/4 oz  Dry Vermouth
1/8 oz  Olive Brine (the juice from the jar)
1/8 oz  Green Chartreuse

2 Olives
Radish slice (salted)

Mix in a metal shaker with 3 ice cubes for about 5 seconds
Strain into a simple cocktail glass
Decorate with 2 olives full of red pepper and a salted radish slice.
