Go on a Date at Home

17 Jan

My sweetheart and I found ourselves blissfully without plans this past Thursday.  It seems despite our best intentions, we’ve been running around since coming home from the holidays, so we were delighted to have a night without any obligations.  We briefly considered going out, but then realized we could have a date night at home.  This was particularly appealing because it meant I didn’t have to wear a bra and we could save a little money.  So we whipped up some martinis, ate cheese and crackers and danced in the living room.  If you ask me, that’s what a date night should be.

Date Night Dirty Martini

2 oz Vodka
1/4 oz  Dry Vermouth
1/4 oz  olive brine
2 green olives

Into a cocktail shaker, pour the vodka, Dry Vermouth and olive brine. Add ice. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Drop the olives into the martini before serving.
