I spent all weekend cooking and trying out new recipes, but I also had to work and it was the last weekend in my grad school semester. A cocktail was sorely needed, and a personal favorite of mine is the pickletini. Outside of the recipe, that’s about the extent of this post. It’s been a very long, very short weekend.
- Vodka or Gin
- French Dry Vermouth
- Dill Pickles
- Dill Pickle Juice
- Couple of ice cubes
- Pick for the pickles
Pour about 2 shots worth of vodka into the mixer. Pour double that amount of dry vermouth into the mixer. Add a liberal amount of pickle juice and the ice cubes. Put top on mixer and shake to desired mix/coldness. Pour into martini glass and add a pickle or two for garnish/to snack on.
Sorry for the lack of measures. You can always taste it to see if it’s too strong/too weak and adjust as you go. That way if you need it to be stronger, you can have at it.
