There is something so fun about a martini when you are in the mood for a great evening. We all know how to make a classic martini, but today I’m teaching you how to make a Dirty Greek Martini – which is the classic recipe with a Greek twist.

This is a fun drink because you shake it up with a cocktail shaker and pour it into your prettiest martini glass. I love how James Bond-y the whole thing feels, which is why I’m wearing my fancy dress while I make it. To switch things up I use pepperoncini juice instead of classic olive juice. I also stuff the olives with feta for a little extra tang. These two Greek twists give the drink a whole new flavor and cool look, as well.

This is a fun drink to kick off an evening when you have a pretty table set and the lights down low. It also makes for a great cocktail sipper when people are swinging by for a bite before heading out for a fun evening. No matter how you serve it I know you’ll love it – you can’t go wrong with a drink like this one!


This is a great drink for a snazzy night with friends. I give it a Greek twist with feta-stuffed olives and pepperoncini juices instead of olive juice. Cheers!
