Dirty Cocktail Recipe of the week- "The Down and Dirty Vodka Martini"

Happy Friday Dirty Bombshells! I hope your work week was wonderful but now its time for the weekend! This week's Cocktail Recipe shows us how to get down and dirty with a simple twist on the Dirty Martini, by replacing Gin with Vodka.
Martini's have been around since the 19th century and didn't really take off until prohibition since gin was an easily accessible illegal alcohol to get your hands on. After the prohibition, and into the 20th century, the martini, and it's variations were seen as old fashioned and lost its luster until most recently.

You will need:  Vodka, Dry Vermouth, Olive brine, Olives, martini glass and a cocktail shaker.

In the cocktail shaker:

  • Add Ice
  • 2oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Dry Vermouth
  • 1/4oz Olive Brine
 Cap shaker and shake well. (Usually 5-10 seconds)

Strain and pour contents into a martini glass. Garnish with Olives ( I like 3)

Cheers! There you have a Down and Dirty Vodka Martini! Have a great weekend Dirty Bombshells!
