A great drink to kick off the night that is shaken, not stirred! Â The only difference between a traditional martini and a dirty martini is that a little splash of olive juice is added.Â We added a little something special to this one â€“ blue cheese stuffed olives.Â This is my nephew, Jonathanâ€™s rendition of the classic drink.Â Shake it up and enjoy! Â 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 Â½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon more if desired
Blue cheese stuffed olives for garnish
The ingredient amounts will yield one drink.Â In a shaker add the first two ingredients and fill with ice.Â Shake well and strain into a martini glass.Â No ice should be present. Â Add olive juice, garnish with olives and enjoy!
