Dirty Martini

Dirty Martini

A Martini with an extra olive taste.

[Glamour] [Happy Hour] [Simple] [Strong] [Winter Night]

Ingredients [ oz | cl ][ My Bar ]
2 12 oz Gin[ Add ]
12 oz Dry Vermouth[ Add ]
1 Olive[ Add ]
14 oz Olive Brine[ Add ]
Method: Prepare in a shaker
Glass: Cocktail
  1. Pour the gin (or vodka), olive juice and and dry vermouth into a shaker, along with a few ice cubes.
  2. The quality of the spirit here is a bit less important than with a classic Martini because of the strong olive flavor.
  3. Shake very gently for a few seconds, until the mix is chilled. Don't shake too hard; it will create air bubbles that will get you a cloudy drink.
  4. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
  5. Drop in olive in the glass for decoration.
