Cocktails: The Perfect Vodka Martini

My absolute favorite go-to drink is a classic: an extra dirty vodka martini.  I like mine a very specific way and like to think I have a knack for making them (please tell me if I am incorrect!)  

Good vodka (Belvedere or Grey Goose are my usuals)
Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives
Martini and Rossi Vermouth
Crushed Ice

To Make...
*Fill glasses with ice and set aside.
*Fill shaker half way with ice
*Add in 1/2 cup of vodka
*Add in 1/2 teaspoon of vermouth
*Add in 1/4 cup of olive juice
*Shake, shake, shake!
*Empty ice from glasses and strain from shaker into glass.
*Skewer three (this is the optimal amount) olives onto a toothpick or skewer and add to drink.
*Enjoy! (responsibly!)

Cheers to Monday!


  1. Even though I LOVE olives, I'm not a huge martini fan but my boyfriend is-I'll have to learn to make these for him!

    1. I can only drink them extra dirty because I hate when it tastes too vodka-y! Love olives, yum!

  2. Oh yay, a vodka martini drinker rather than gin. I despise gin! Love me a good vodka dirty martini!
