Written by Lorna C

Dirty Martini is a cocktail I first tried one New Years Eve party and it has become a tradition ever since. It is an amazing flavour that can become very addictive. First created in a bar in New York in around 1901. A bartender added olive juice to muddy the clear drink and become very popular with President Roosevelt.
