|a classic and a fav.|
Senior year of college, there was a swanky martini bar called Alto, about two blocks from our house. Being above the Pittsburgh Deli Company, it was quite out of place, but my friends and I loved it. This is where I met the Extra Dirty Martini.
About 1/3 shot glass dry vermouth
3 shots chilled vodka
1 1/2 shots olive juice
Shake with ice like life depends on it...
You should still be shaking...seeking for ice-bits. Strain into the glass (use the glass shaker and metal cup to let the liquid and ice chips fall in but not the ice cubes).
|Chin-chin! I hear in Japanese this toast is rather dirty! Like our martinis.|
Garnish with an olive and enjoy!
