The Dirtiest of Martinis

So I wanted to explore some new territory in honor of cocktail week. Below is my first attempt at an infographic explaining a subject near and dear to my heart, Pollutants in the Ocean.

For those of you without an iron stomach, hang out in the #DSNSuite more often or, a more palatable version:

The Dirty Martini

2 oz gin

1 tbsp dry vermouth

2 tbsp olive juice

2 olives (and an extra bowl on the side so I can put them on my fingers and eat them…cause I’m cool like that)

How to Dirty your Martini:

1. Place an ice cube and a small amount of water in a cocktail glass. Place in freezer for 2 – 3 minutes. 

2. Fill a mixer with all ingredients including garnish. Cover and shake hard 3 – 4 times. 

3. Remove cocktail glass from freezer, and empty. Strain contents of the mixer into the cocktail glass, include one of the olives, and serve with a mysterious smile.

  1. You know why I love Martinis? Because when I have enough of them, then I do not give a ratty ass about the rest of the selfish world that has no respect for each other, as long as I stay drunk, then this dirty planet can just fall apart for all I care….
