The Happy Hour: Olive-ation
Jul 23, 2010
Years ago, Miss M introduced me to the joys of Dirrrrty Vodka Martini. I use all those Rs because Miss M likes her drink so dirty that it mimics the color and flavor of olive brine. And lo to the bartender who simply stabs an olive with a mini-sword and calls it dirty.
1 1/2 cups vodka
6 tablespoons dry vermouth, divided
6 tablespoons juice from olive jar, divided
For each cocktail, combine 1/4 cup vodka, 1 tbsp. vermouth, and 1 tbsp. juice from olive jar in a cocktail shaker. Add a handful of ice. Stir or shake vigorously for at least 1 minute and strain into a martini glass. Repeat for remaining cocktails.
