The best dirty martini recipe you'll ever try. I even show how to make it extra dirty and I have a surprise ingredient that takes this classic dirty martini up a notch. #nationalmartiniday // www.ElleTalk.com
In this extra-dirty take on the classic martini, we combine equal parts gin and dry vermouth with a generous pour of olive brine. It makes for a mellower cocktail with a salty-smooth and crisp finish: a savory pick-me-upper for gin lovers like me, who can't quite handle the fiery stiffness of its drier cousin.
