Like your martini dirty? This cocktail is definitely calling your name. You get a hit of heat from the fiery jalapeños. Taper the spice level by adjusting the amount of jalapeños; for a fierce kick, leave the seeds and membranes intact; for more subtle heat, remove them before adding to your glass. While the traditional dirty martini calls for gin, I prefer using vodka for a smoother feel… but as I like to say “you’re the boss of your sauce!”

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 drink
  • • ¼ cup vodka or gin
  • • 1 Tablespoon dry vermouth
  • • 1 Tablespoon olive brine
  • • Sliced jalapenos
  • • Garnish: 2 to 3 green olives stuffed with jalapeños or pimentos

Add 2-3 slices jalapeños (membrane and seeds left on, only if you’re a heat lover) into the bottom of a shaker or glass and muddle. Add remaining ingredients along with ice. Shake (or stir) vigorously and then pour the liquid into a chilled martini glass (without the ice). Garnish with jalapeño slices and jalapeño-or-pimento-stuffed green olives.
