Classic Dirty Batch Martini

Sometimes simple is best. And, if you’re a simple martini lover, this aquavit cocktail recipe is sure to satisfy. It works well with just the olive bitters, but also shines with the addition of olive brine (we love the Olive Twist olives and juice from Tillen Farms), so make it as dirty as you like! Lots of folks also love splitting the vermouth evenly between dry and sweet, according to your taste.

Shake over ice:
3 oz. Batch 22 Classic Gold aquavit
.5 oz. Dry vermouth
.5 oz. Sweet vermouth
2-4 dashes, olive bitters

Olive brine to taste
Strain into a martini glass
Garnish with olives or a cornichon

Serves 1
