i love dirty martinis.  i think it is the most fantastic drink you can have.  i will order a dirty martini just about any place i go.  someone once told me that a certain entertainer likes to do shots of vodka and chase them with pickle juice.  while i can’t prove this, the thought of vodka and pickle juice intrigued me and i thought – why not a pickle martini?  i’ve never seen one on a drink menu and i only have seen a handful of posts of them online.  being a martini lover that i am, i decided to shake one up at my personal bar.  I used Claussen’s kosher dill pickles.  After a few tests of the Pickletini, this one was the best, hands down.

you will need:

3 oz. vodka

2 oz. pickle juice

dash of vermouth

pickles for garnish

place an ice cube and water in a martini glass and put it in the freezer for a couple of minutes.

fill a shaker half way with ice and add the vodka and pickle juice.  shake hard 4 or 5 times.

remove cocktail glass from freezer and empty out the water.  before adding the mixture, swirl around a few dashes of vermouth in the martini glass and pour out.  add the vodka and pickle juice mixture and garnish with a pickle.

this yields one delicious martini.  enjoy 🙂
