First, put the garlic cloves, capers and sardines in the food processor with the Pastis (or Gin). Give it several pulses to make a paste.
Next, add ⅓ of the olives and approximately ⅓ of the olive oil and ⅓ of the herbs. Pulse several times. Mix together with your spoon, bringing the contents on the side of the bowl into the center.
Repeat 3 times. This does not need to be exact, but separating the ingredients into 3 batches allows an even mixture between ingredients.
Serve the tapenade with totis, little toasts made of day old baguette. For the Totis: Slice baguette into ¼ inch slices. Put the slices in the toaster or a couple of minutes under the broiler until golden brown.
