Olive Brine?

I enjoy dirty martini's and as a result, have several jars of olives in the frig that are low on their "juice". I would rather not have dry olives so am looking for thoughts on what I can refill the jars with. EVOO with vinegar? Water? Thoughts?

Non-iodized salt/water solution plus a little vinegar will work....Not for the Martinis, but to cover the Olives......

Green olives are usually packed in salt water.

Thank you all! I'm going to put them all in one jar and cover with salt, water and vinegar.

msmofet, that's what DH says! I would really like someone to bottle just the juice ...

drain all the liquid for your martinis and make some olive sauce for pasta or olive salad with the olives.
