Simple Dirty Vodka Martini

As per request, here is the recipe for a simple Dirty Martini. This is the one you will usually get at medium priced bars and clubs, and the one which is easiest and cheapest to mix for a bunch of guests.

Alcohol: 30%
You will need:
3oz (9cl) vodka (Absolut)
1 oz (3cl) dry vermouth
½ oz olive brine
olives (1-3)
ice
cocktail glass
shaker
cocktail stick

Instructions:
Fill shaker halfway with ice. Pour in the vodka, vermouth and olive brine and shake well. Strain into a pre-chilled cocktail glass. Spear the desired number of olives on the cocktail stick, add it and serve.

Tips:
It is important to note that you should, once again, try to balance this drink to your own liking. Some people prefer their Martini very dirty and add 1½ oz (3 times as much!) olive brine and up to 6 olives. Some people use only a tiny splash of vermouth, or leave it out completely. It is up to you to discover what you prefer.

Enjoy!

  1. 30% alcohol? I'll see if I can round up the ingredients.
