Spicy martini

This spicy drink was inspired by the mermaid inn in New York, which does a tasty oyster happy hour. I had a spicy vodka martini there before consuming a platter of various types of oyster with friends. They garnished theirs with a hot pepper, but I didn’t have any of those available so I improvised with olives and sliced spring onion. The latter went very well with the drink. Here are the ingredients:

1 part vermouth (or to taste)
1 part olive brine (or to taste)
Around 4-5 parts gin or vodka (or to taste)
Dash of hot sauce or Tabasco (to taste)

Pour the ingredients then stir them with your garnish.

The drink was quite refreshing, savoury and it had a kick. It really whet my appetite.
