Shaken or stirred? Dirty martini mocktail recipe
The classic martini cocktail is famous around the world. This non-alcoholic take on the dirty martini variant is sure to become a favourite with savoury-flavour lovers.
Immortalised in popular culture, most notably via the James Bond movie series, the classic martini is one of the world’s best-known cocktails.
Believed to have emerged from New York’s bar scene in the early 1900s, the dirty martini twist on the classic martini cocktail is polarising, delivering a salty and savoury flavour profile that’s loved as much as it’s hated.
So, what makes a dirty martini, "dirty"? Simply take the traditional martini and add olive brine. Ask the bartender for “extra dirty” (or even “filthy”) for more brine to be added to your martini, ramping up the saltiness in the process.
