Pickle Martini

This pickle martini sports a gorgeously complex garnish of pickle, olive, onion, and dried pepper skin.

Folks, take a look at this gorgeous garnish! Can you see that there’s also a pearl onion, under the surface? Elizabeth made this especially for me, and it’s exquisitely done.

This is also the best pickle martini I’ve had, at least since a specialty pickle martini on the Lower East Side of NYC in 2010 – and maybe ever!

It tastes fresh and natural and complex and delicious. It’s not from a jar, like the others; this pickle brine comes from a more specialized batch where strands of dill floated throughout, along with large chunks of garlic. We’ve come a long way from some early attempts at pickle martinis!

  • 1.5 oz. Pickle Brine

  • Garnish – dill pickle, dried pepper skin, olive, onion


  • Shake gin and brine with ice; pour and come up with the most amazing garnish to impress your girlfriend!
