Filthy Martini


I almost forgot! Remember a couple weeks ago when I started making some tomato vodka for a secret cocktail recipe? Well, I finally got around to finishing up the tomato vodka and making my delicious martini. Sorry to keep you waiting.

If you are just joining me, you can click here to check out how I started the tomato vodka. After the tomatoes sat in the vodka for seven days, well actually almost ten, it was straining time. Since I don’t own a kitchen strainer, I opted for a funnel and some cheesecloth. 

I used the original vodka bottle, added the funnel, and lined it with a few layers of cheesecloth.

This straining process worked, but it was a little messy and time consuming. If you decide to make tomato vodka, I’d strongly recommend using a wire mesh strainer.

Once the vodka was strained, it was time to mix up some Filthy Martinis! If you remember, I was inspired to make this drink from my fabulous dinner at Hundred Acres in New York City.

Here’s what you’ll need:

3 oz. tomato vodka

1 oz. dill pickle juice

Sprig of fresh dill


Fill your cocktail shaker with ice.

Add the tomato vodka.

Then the dill pickle juice.

Toss in some fresh dill.

And shake like crazy!

I like my martinis as cold as humanly possible, so I shake things up for a while.

Then, pour all that deliciousness into a martini glass.

Sit back, sip, and enjoy!

I realize this martini may not be for everyone, but I love it! I get so bored with all the super sweet and fruity drinks. This is a nice change of pace. If you don’t like dill pickles, you could easily substitute olive juice. 

If you still aren’t feeling it, this vodka, as many of you suggested, would be perfect for an intense Bloody Mary. 

If you are brave, give the Filthy Martini a try and let me know what you think!

    Not a big vodka fan but this may well change my mind. Love the pickle/tomato combo and we still have fresh dill in the garden. Great recipe! Thanks, Michael!

    I can’t drink alcohol, immediate chronic migraines – boo 🙁 but I remember going to Olive Garden restaurant when visiting Florida and they made the best alcohol-free Pina Colada ever!! I’ve never been able to reproduce it myself.

    Yum yum, this looks fantastic. I am wondering if this would work to flavour gin or perhaps cucumber would taste better in gin, what are your thoughts?
