The Dirty Martini is a simple variation on the traditional martini – it just adds a little bit of olive brine, which clouds the cocktail (hence the name “dirty martini”). If you like a martini with an olive garnish, you’ll probably love this drink. The olive brine adds a wonderful salty, savory flavor that blends in smoothly with the citrus and herb notes from the gin and vermouth.
