Filthy Martini

One of the most famous cocktails around, the martini has countless variations. Some are abominations (the chocolate martini) while others are a lifestyle choice (the dirty martini). This take on the vodka dirty martini replaces the traditional olive elements with a caperberry and its brine. Try it at your next cocktail party or anytime you’re feeling filthy.

What to buy: Don’t confuse capers and caperberries. Capers are the size of peppercorns and can be sold packed in a vinegar brine or in salt; caperberries look like small green olives with a stem attached and are sold packed in a vinegar brine.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine vodka, brine, and vermouth in a cocktail shaker. Top with ice and stir until chilled through, about 30 stirs. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with a caperberry, and serve.
