Dirty Martini Ice Cubes Are The New Way To Consume This Classic Drink
Many believe that serving a martini on the rocks leaves you with a watery drink, but others are challenging this idea by encasing cocktail olives in ice made from brine and water.
Martinis are then served over the olive-studded cubes to add a fun, unexpected touch. The water helps to balance the drink, while the brine prevents too much dilution.
The extra water also helps ensure that the salty brine freezes solid. Use Castelvetrano olives, which freeze well, complement gin, and have a low salt content.
