How to Make a Dirty Martini?
Okay, so I know how it's made. 2 1/2 parts dry gin 1/2 part dry vermouth and olive brine, but my question is about the brine in particular. Most bartenders to my knowledge have a separate bottle of olive brine they use for the cocktail but would it be the same if I simply used the juice from an average jar of olives? It there a difference between the two?

I didn’t even know separate olive brine exists! Of course you can use the brine from the olive jar. It’s all I’ve ever done. I think it would be better because the brine flavor will match the olive flavor.

The separate bottle is just the brine from a bottle they have already taken all the olives out of. Bartenders often keep the brine if they know they are going to make more.
