Cocktail Recipe: Tío Pepe Fino Sherry Dirty Martini

Tío Pepe Fino Sherry Martini

Tío Pepe Fino Sherry is 100% Palomino that sees 4 to 5 years in American oak casks after going through the traditional Solera system. It's a pretty darn good Sherry on its own for the $20 it'll cost you, with that lovely flor yeastiness and nuttiness, but today we're making a cocktail out of this bad boy. Instead of using Vermouth to make a martini, we're using Tío Pepe.

WHAT YOU NEED: 
Cocktail Shaker
2 ounces of gin (I used New Amsterdam)
2 ounces of Tío Pepe Fino Sherry
Green olives

WHAT YOU DO:
1) Drop some ice into your cocktail shaker
2) Pour 2 ounces of Tío Pepe Fino and 2 ounces of gin into the shaker
3) Shake the crap out of it
4) Strain into a glass
5) Plop an olive or three or six and splash some olive juice in there
6) Drink up!

The botanicals of the gin play along really well with the classic flavors of Fino Sherry, but I really do believe that making this martini a dirty one is the key to making it all work. Honestly it's not for everybody and I wouldn't recommend it for people who don't like Sherry or gin or olives (how dare you in all cases), but I'm really enjoying it and making myself another one (or two)! Cheers!
