In a deep bowl, mix together the yolk, 1/2 the vinegar and mustard. Season with salt, pepper and mix well. Slowly add the vegetable oil (almost drop by drop), whilst constantly beating with a hand whisk.
Once the mayonnaise begins to take in the oil, replace the vegetable oil by the extra-virgin olive oil. Continue to slowly add the olive oil and continuously beat until smooth. When smooth, add the remaining vinegar and beat for 1 minute more.
If the mayonnaise is too thick, add 1 teaspoon of warm water to make it lighter and less firm.
