Mike Holton – of Drinks with Mike – demonstrates how to make a dirty martini. Firstly, ice your glassware. This chills it and keeps the flavor nice and cold. Then, fill up your shaker with ice and fill it up with a six count of vodka which means you must count till six while pouring the vodka in the shaker. Add a splash of dry vermouth and a splash of olive juice. Attach the shaker top and shake for ten seconds. Check for the ice buildup on the outside of the shaker. Grab your strainer, dump the ice out of the martini glasses and pour the martini into the glasses. A properly prepared martini will have a layer of ice on the glass. Drop in an olive garnish and serve.
