Dill Pickle Martini Recipe
The tangy juice of the dill pickle suits the dry flavor of vodka in this 3-ingredient martini.
Vodka and dill pickle juice are shaken into a martini that's a different twist on your typical olive martini in this 3-ingredient cocktail.
If you like pickles and martinis, you'll love this quick and easy pickletini cocktail made with pickle juice and vodka.
Move over dirty martini! I love a good, ice cold, dirty martini. I am also obsessed with bloody Mary's (extra pickle juice). So when I saw this I had to try it....and it's amazing. Like another reviewer suggested, I used Claussen pickles and juice, which I think makes this delicious and not too salty. Measurements are perfect. Also, if you're not a huge fan of pickles, you probably shouldn't try it. Thank you for the recipe! I wish I would've thought of it! Cheers!
As others have stated, the success of this depends on the pickle juice yo use. I've used Claussen whole pickles/juice with the most success. Steer clear of any of the green colored pickle juices as they are just not right for this drink. I also make sure to put a couple of the pickle rounds in the bottom of the glass as well.
I agree, surprisingly delicious! If you love pickles, you will love this drink. When I shared this with followers there was some negativity, but this is not that far off from the dirty martini. Definitely garnish with a couple pickle slices. :) I used home canned pickle slices. Will definitely have it again! My motto: Don't knock it til you've tried it.
i guess the key here is of course the dill pickle juice, i tried both ways with actual pickle juice from a nice home made preserve pickles and the one you just buy from your local liquor store, let me tell in my personal experience, the formal was awesome but the latter i couldn't drink it was really salty and just lacked the nice flavor, so i guess try it both ways then decide.
