Dirty Martini (May 12)

A dirty gin martini, that is a darker color because it's made with kalamata olive brine.

Ah, the Dirty Martini, Maura’s favorite.

I’m very traditional about my martinis; they are always gin, never vodka. I realize, though, that you might ask why a traditionalist is interested in a dirty martini to begin with. Answer: it tastes fantastic!


  • gin

  • whisper of vermouth

  • olive brine

  • as many olives as you can reasonably fit


  • Put gin, brine, vermouth and ice in a cocktail shaker; shake until you think there will be crystals of ice floating on the surface of the cocktail.
  • Pour into a chilled glass.
  • Cheers!
