Dirty vodka martinis are a staple at television personality Alex Guarnaschelli's parties,but she also likes to mix it up from time to time.A floral gin martini made seriously dirty with olives is a great palate opener,she says,but the real secret is adding the brine from the jar of capers in the door in her fridge.

How to Make It


Place crushed ice in a cocktail shaker or jar with a lid.Add gin,olive juice,vermouth,and caper brine.Swirl until liquid is cold and sides of shaker have condensation,about 30 seconds.Strain gin mixture evenly into 2 martini glasses.Crack pepper over olives,and add 3 olives to each glass.
