How dirty do you like it? For starters… this is a filthy martini. The tart, sensual overtones of olives is calmed by the delicate herbal tones of the Lillet. A match made in heaven. Go ahead, try one…. you know you want it.
INTENSE OLIVE MARTINI
2 oz Belvedere Intense
1/4 oz Lilet Blanc Vermouth
A dash grapefruit bitters
3 large green olives
3 Teaspoons Olive Brine
- Place martini glasses in freezer to get them nice and cold. You can also fill the glass with ice and cold water and wait for a few minutes until the glass gets cold.
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Muddle olives with the olive brine. Add to cocktail shaker with rest of ingredients and shake. Note: The more olive juice the dirtier the martini.
- Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with green olives.
