I’m clearly someone who does not appreciate the finer things in life.
In fact, my ideal night consists of a dirty record spinning on the turntable, a cheap case of beer cooling in a nearby kiddie pool and no pants.
However, there are some things I have grown to appreciate, such as the sacred institution of an after-work drink. And what better way to celebrate than a martini?
Some things should also be left up to a professional; the martini is likely one of those things.
But, like hemming a pair of dress pants, changing the oil in a car and sordid massages, some things should also be left up to a professional. The martini is likely one of those things.
But I also appreciate a good challenge.
So, without further ado, check out Ominocity’s recipes for a truly dirty martini:
Fill a mixing glass with ice
3 1/2 oz Gin
1/2 oz Sour Apple Liqueur (failing this, add apple juice and more gin)
Dash sour mix (optional)
Strain into chilled glass
Of course, it’s just not a martini without a garnish. However, since I am typically without a decent garnish, I have found that chewable Vitamin B “sour berries” actually make an excellent substitute.
Bonus: The medicine-y taste means it’s healthy, so take that haters!
