Pepper and Spruce Tip Dirty Martini

The dirty martini, made by adding olive brine to the traditional recipe, is a well-loved twist on a classic cocktail. For a twist on a twist, we created this concoction which uses pickled spruce tips in addition to the usual garnish.

To pickle the spruce tips, we used an infusion of Vietnamese black peppercorns, green peppercorns and long pepper. The combination adds a spicy and savory punch to the natural flavor of the spruce tips. With so many strong flavors at play, it made sense to opt for a vodka martini over gin, to avoid adding the intensity of juniper to the mix.

The final result is a bold martini that combines woody aromatics with rich briny notes and a slight peppery bite. Give it a try!
