Turns out I must officially be a grown up … because I always thought you had to be one to enjoy drinks like Dirty Vodka Martinis.
Remember the old shows like I love Lucy and Bewitched? How Ricky and Darren would come home to a fresh martini cocktail at the end of the day?
It just seemed so grown up and sophisticated!
I have always loved olives, of any kind, and the idea of a dirty martini just sounded good. It wasn’t until I had a good one that I was hooked.
We have been making them at home for a while now, and this is the recipe we use.
It’s perfect when you shake them just right and there are little ice chips in the glass!
- 6 ounces of good Vodka, we use Grey Goose
- 1/2 ounce dry Vermouth
- 1 ounce green olive juice (brine)
- 2-3 large stuffed green olives
Add ice cubes and cold water to a martini glass to chill glass.
Add vodka, vermouth and olive juice into a martini shaker, add ice and shake to chill.
Drain water from martini glass and strain martini from shaker into the glass.
Add olives and serve.
Also fabulous with bleu cheese stuffed olives!
