Spicy and Salty: Hot and Dirty Martini Recipe

Spicy and salty, Nicole’s hot and dirty martini checks all of the boxes. This week we’re keeping it local – using vodka from our friends at Rhodium, and freshly stuffed olives from FrescOlive.

Hot & Dirty Martini


  • 2-4 dashes cayenne or jalapeño based hot sauce
  • 2.5 oz vodka or gin
  • 1/2 oz olive brine
  • 3 olives for garnish


  • Add spirit, hot sauce, and olive brine into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into a martini or coupe glass and garnish with three olives. Cheers!
