The Dirty Martini, 2 Ways

The martini. A classic cocktail with a seemingly never-ending list of variations. Dry or wet? Dirty or with a twist? With vodka or gin? 

We’re here to complicate matters even more by throwing yet another variation into the mix: the CPH martini. Below you’ll find the dirty martini you know and love along with this new iteration, which calls for pickled vegetable juice instead of the typical olive brine, so you can shake it up when you want a martini that leans more sour than salty.

Martinis are ruled by preference, so feel free to choose gin or vodka, go a little easy on the vermouth, and indulge in a few extra olives.
