A Dirty Martini
The world of drinking Martinis is complicated - if you’re in the mood for a deeper dive, have a read of this.
10ml dry vermouth
Between 5ml and 20ml of good quality brine. If you want it really filthy opt for the latter, if you want just a touch of the sea a bar spoon (5ml) will do.
Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass, stir with a bar spoon for a good 20 seconds (if you’re not sure if the dilution is right, use the spoon to drop a couple of drops on the back of your hand to taste - it should be cold, but have lost the alcoholic sting without becoming watery).
Pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with two or three of your favourite olives.
