Hot & Dirty
Our go-to drink when in a bar of unknown provenance is the Dirty Martini. It’s not fancy, but it’s difficult to mess up – and its savory flavor pairs well with fried food and other bar fare.
The Hot & Dirty builds on this inglorious foundation, adding just a touch of hot sauce to brighten the briny succulence of the olive juice.
You probably won’t impress anyone with your cocktail creds, serving one of these; even the name is painfully outré. But it is a legitimately delicious savory cocktail, and there are far too few of those.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive.
