What's the difference between a Dry Martini and a Dirty Martini? An olive!!
In 1901, John O'Connor, a New York Bartender, added a splash of olive brine along with the olive garish and voila' - the Dirty Martini.
Only one question remains when it comes to the Dirty Martini - do you prefer your's shaken or stirred? ⑅ ........ (one for the James Bond fans.....)
