I love a good classic gin martini. Even better, is when it comes with a little olive juice, which makes it dirty. It's also the perfect liquid lunch bridging Winter and Spring, almost effortlessly.
Dirty Martini Recipe
2 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1/4-1/2 oz olive juice (to taste)
olive(s) for garnish
If you make it
1. Pour ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice
3. Strain into chilled martini glass
If you're ordering a Dirty Martini, you've got to do it right. You want to go for something chic, timeless and on-trend, which is possible by taking timeless silhouettes and fragrances and then pairing it with trending accessories. Not every girl can do this with success. You've got to really own it.
