  • 3 ounces quality vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces olive juice (sse note)
  • olives for garnish


  • Combine vodka and olive juice in a martini shaker. Stir with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with olives.


This is just about the dirtiest martini you are going to find. If you aren't sure about the olive juice, start with half the amount listed. If it isn't dirty enough for you, add more. I LOVE it just as written.
Vermouth:  You will notice that this recipe does not call for vermouth. If you want to try it with vermouth, add anywhere from a splash to 1/4 ounce for a single martini.
