Dev's Wet & Dirty Martini

devsmartini

I recently made these for a family friend and he practically laughed in my face because he said they were so wet and dirty (actually he really did laugh in my face). But fuck it, we could all use a little more wet and dirty in our lives right?? (Just kidding. Maybe? Gross.)

INGREDIENTS

  • Gin (I used Bombay Dry Gin) // If you don’t like gin use Vodka (I like Tito’s or Ketel One)
  • Dry Vermouth
  • Olive Brine (literally the juice from a jar of olives)
  • Pimento Pepper Stuffed Olives

To clarify...

  • Wet = lots of vermouth (a Dry Martini fittingly refers to a martini with very little vermouth)
  • Dirty = lots of olive juice

So apparently the traditional ratio is 5 or 6 parts gin or vodka to 1 part vermouth, but the dev martini ratio is 2 parts gin to 1 part vermouth (whoops). For two martinis, fill a cocktail shaker halfway up with ice, pour 4 shots of gin, 2 shots of dry vermouth, and 1 shot of olive brine. Shake well and drink well.
