Part 3 of 4 with Effen Cucumber Vodka:  Dirty Cucumber Martini

We are back with part 3 of 4 using Effen Cucumber Vodka to craft wonderful cocktails. This week’s drink is called the Dirty Cucumber Martini.

It follows the same recipe as a traditional dirty martini; we just added a twist with the Effen Cucumber Vodka. It goes down remarkably smooth with a lighter finish than a traditional dirty martini.


Level of Difficultly: Low

Ingredients Needed: Effen Cucumber Vodka, olives (regular or stuffed), Dry Vermouth

Tools Needed: Shaker, Jigger, Spoon, Martini glass


1.       Place two or three olives in bottom of the martini glass

2.       Add ice to shaker, 2 ½ oz Effen Cucumber Vodka, ¾ oz fresh olive juice, and ¼ oz Dry Vermouth (less is more with Vermouth)

3.       Close shaker and shake for 20-30 seconds.

4.       Strain into martini glass

5.       Enjoy!
