I recently took a trip to San Diego to visit one of my best friends. While I was there, I had one of the BEST dirty martinis of my life and have been craving one ever since!
The secret: blue cheese stuffed olives + pickled onion.
I am not a huge blue cheese fan myself, but in this dirty martini it really adds a nice kick to it! Trust me, it’s a must try!
Dirty Blue Martini

- 1 tablespoon olive brine or juice
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- Skewer olives and onion. Coat chilled martini glass with vermouth. In a shaker, combine vodka, ice and olive juice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with prepared skewer.
- Serve immediately
