Dirty Martini

The martini is a cocktail made with gin and vermouth, and garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. Over the years, the martini has become one of the best-known mixed alcoholic beverages.

By 1922 the martini reached its most recognizable form in which dry gin and dry vermouth are combined at a ratio of 2:1, stirred in a mixing glass with ice cubes, with the optional addition of orange or aromatic bitters, then strained into a chilled cocktail glass. However, given the history of the drink, many variations have been formed.

Our favourite is the Dirty Martini, which contains a splash of olive brine or olive juice and is typically garnished with an olive.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ oz. 1823 Dry Gin
  • ½ oz. dry vermouth
  • ½ oz. olive brine
  • Garnish – 4 olives

i. Pour the 1823 Dry Gin, dry vermouth, and olive brine into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until well-chilled.
