Dirty Martini (July 6)

A dirty gin martini, with two olives as garnish.

The classic martini is a gin martini. It happens to be Maura’s favorite. Before Mad Men made it popular all over again (though, really, a classic never fades away, does it?) Maura had made something of a signature of drinking a dirty martini. (Please don’t ask: it’s gin. Always gin).

Ingredients

  • Gin is the only acceptable liquor for a martini

  • Whisper of vermouth (if desired)

  • Olive brine

  • Olives

Directions

  • Shake gin, vermouth, brine and ice in a cocktail shaker until satisfied.
  • Pour into a chilled martini glass; garnish with olives.
  • Cheers!
