The dirty martini is one of my all time favorite classic cocktails. While the dirty martini is great as it is, some bartenders and mixologists are trying other variations. High Horse, my favorite bar in Amherst, MA, once served a dirty martini with pickle brine instead of olive juice. I’ve been meaning to try it myself ever since.

What you’ll need:
3 oz vodka
1 oz pickle brine
1 tbsp dry vermouth
Lemon wheel

Directions:
Combine the vodka, pickle brine, and vermouth in a shaker. Add ice and shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with the lemon wheel to serve.
