Enjoy the flavors of a dirty martini in a bowl.
Heat rice according to package directions.
Heat olive oil in a small pan on medium high heat. Add green olives, garlic, and lemon zest. Sauté for 1 minute or when it becomes fragrant.
Remove the pan from the heat, then add gin to the pan to make a flavorful sauce. Be careful, when cooking with alcohol, the alcohol can ignite. Return pan to heat and allow the liquid to cook for 3 minutes or until the alcohol smell has dissipated and the liquid turns syrupy. At this point the alcohol is cooked out.
Mix in the rice and serve.
Adding blue cheese, and/or lemon juice can add even more flavor.
A substitute for the gin can be olive juice.
