A great drink to kick off the night that is shaken, not stirred! The only difference between a traditional martini and a dirty martini is that a little splash of olive juice is added. We added a little something special to this one – blue cheese stuffed olives. This is my nephew, Jonathan’s rendition of the classic drink. Shake it up and enjoy! I have put ingredient amounts in cups and tablespoons, because I think that it will be easier for the home cook/mixologist to make.
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (3 oz.) of Vodka
2 tablespoons (1 oz.) of Vermouth
Splash of olive juice abut ½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon more if desired
Blue cheese stuffed olives for garnish
The ingredient amounts will yield one drink. In a shaker add the first two ingredients and fill with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. No ice should be present. Add olive juice, garnish with olives and enjoy!
