Jalapeno Dirty Martini

It's probably pretty clear by now that I like drinking...and that my favorite cocktails are spicy cocktails (as seen here, here, and here). Well folks, this new recipe I whipped up last weekend is no different. 

I love a good dirty martini, but I love dirty martinis even more when they have a little something extra in them - whether it be cheese-stuffed olives or jalapeno-stuffed olives. And since we always have a jar of pickled jalapenos in our fridge, I decided to experiment.

Jalapeno Dirty Martini
Yields: 1 cocktail
-3 ice cubes
-3 ounces jalapeno flavored vodka (I used Stoli)
-1 ounce extra dry vermouth
-3/4 ounce olive juice (from olive jar)
-3/4 ounce jalapeno juice (from pickled jalapeno jar)
-3 olives and 2 pickled jalapenos for garnish

1.) Place ice cubes in a martini shaker. Add everything but the olives and jalapenos, and shake for 10-15 seconds. Pour in a cold martini glass.
2.) Place olives and jalapenos on a toothpick; drop into martini. Cheers!

Spicy, smooth, and strong, this was a great way to kick off my weekend.

Are you a fan of spicy cocktails?


  1. If you are not a fan of dirty Martinis just make a normal dry Martini and pop in a slice of a pickled jalapeno. Makes it really interesting when you get to the end..

    1. Sounds great, Peter! I do love my traditional dirty martinis too, though. :)

  2. I'm totally drinking a dirty martini as we speak (happy Friday!) and may have to go add some jalapeno juice to mine, too :)


  3. On a recent cruise, one of my friends and I did a Martini tasting. To cut a long story short, we ended up 'inventing' the Tijuana Whore - a regular dirty martini with a two splashes of Jalapeno juice.
