I have been making dirty martinis for around 10 years now, and yet I am just realizing that there is an alternative option to using the brine from the olive jar. Maybe I’ve been out of the loop or maybe it’s a new type of product, but now I know it’s here things are going to change. When the product is from a California-based olive tree orchid primarily known for their olive trees and oils you know they’re doing something right and before mixing the Dirty Martini Juice into my cocktail, I of course tasted it neat and it was delicious.
We couldn’t be seen creating a cocktail without putting our Beautiful Booze spin on it so we decided to make something Mediterranean and added in a little sundried tomato oil which paired so well with the olive juice. We then garnished the cocktail with a sprig of rosemary for aromatics with prosciutto wrapped around it and an olive to finish it off.
What I found especially cool is that Ancient Olive Trees Dirty Martini Juice is crafted with a tree-to-table approach, as it's derived from the olive trees in their orchard. The juice is nourished in aging barrels with premium California-grown olives then filtered three times for a fresh, crisp taste.
