Dirty Martini Recipe
A vodka martini is sullied with olives and brine from the olive jar. It can be served on the rocks, or strained into a chilled cocktail glass.
This spread is my signature dish for parties. It's very easy and pretty tasty. I haven't brought home any leftovers yet.
The tangy juice of the dill pickle suits the dry flavor of vodka in this 3-ingredient martini.
This is the perfect martini recipe! I have tried others and they never seem to be perfect but this one is perfect! Yum!
a few pointers from a seasoned bartender: most bottled olive brine has a strange artificial taste. i recommend using straight olive juice from a jar of quality olives. the difference between a top shelf vodka or gin and a low end is enormous when drinking a martini. save the cheap stuff for mixed drinks! start with a chilled martini glass, pepto it with vermouth, pour out excess, and mix your liquor and olive juice in a cocktail shaker of ice until ice forms on the outside. strain, garnish, and enjoy. the perfect martin!
EASY PEASY, if you have the ingredients. I happen to have DRY VERMOUTH for basting Cornish Game Hen for one one, BOO! And PIMENTO OLIVES, a craving for moi! Plus, Grey Goose Vodka, in like, FOREVER. Didn't know what to do with it! Then, looked up Martini recipes and thought, OLIVES! YES! Saw this and WA LA! DIRTY MARTINI FOR ONE! I DID ADD A BIT MORE DIRTY TO MINE! LOVE OLIVES! GREAT RECIPE! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING!
I'm drinking one right now, and it's awesome! Word of caution, the olive juice takes some of the bite out of the gin, making this go down very easy!
WOW. Really --- WOW. I made this for a Ladies Only Xmas party. When we go out for dinner, we always get Dirty Martinis, so I thought this would be appropriate. It was. It was a huge hit. The only minor change that I made was to add some garlic powder. (Sorry I am a garlic head .. can't resist.) If you like olives and vodka --- you will love this. I'm planning on taking it to the next party I go to. Serving in the Martinin glass looks really cute. Thanks for the recipe !
