A Vodka Dirty Martini is a popular cocktail that combines vodka, dry vermouth, and olive brine, giving it a savory twist. It’s typically served chilled in a martini glass and garnished with olives. The olive brine adds a salty, tangy flavor, making it a distinctive variation of the classic martini.

Tasting Notes

The Vodka Dirty Martini offers a smooth and crisp taste from the vodka, complemented by the herbal notes of dry vermouth. The addition of olive brine introduces a briny, slightly salty flavor that balances the drink. The olives garnish not only enhances the visual appeal but also adds a subtle olive aroma and taste.
