Introduction: Dirtiest Vodka Martini

About: I live with my wife and children in Fort Worth, TX. We enjoy day-trips and junk stores. I'm a firm believer that homemade food tastes better and I love to try new recipes. When I can, I like to head out to the…

Dirty martinis are one of my favorite Sunday night drinks. This is one variation of a classic cocktail that I came up with. I warn you, it's cold, salty and packs a wallop, so drinker beware. 


Step 1: Ingredients

For this cocktail, you will need:

Vodka ( I prefer middle shelf, but you can use whatever kind you like)

Olive Juice

Dry Vermouth (Optional, personally, I don't use it.)

Step 2: Mix It Up

When I make mine, I like them strong so in your cocktail shaker combine:


3 oz. vodka

1 oz. olive juice

Shake briskly for at least 3 minutes.

Spear 2 olives and drop them in your glass. Pour and enjoy.

Optional, Prior to pouring , place a splash of vermouth into your glass, swirl and dump out.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, and once again, please drink responsibly!
