Tribe CBD Dirty Martini Recipe
Like the standard dry martini, nobody knows where the dirty martini was first invented. However, some sources claim this variation dates back to the early 1900s in an NYC bar. Also, legend has it that the dirty martini gained a ton of popularity when Franklin D. Roosevelt brought it to the White House.
Some historians believe the original dirty martini was created by mashing olives at the bottom of a stirring jar instead of adding brine. Supposedly this helps infuse more of the olives’ flavors into your drink. However, it’s far more common for modern bartenders to add some olive brine and olive garnishes.
As with all other martini recipes, the more traditional spirit is gin. However, it’s increasingly common for mixologists to use vodka in this drink, so please feel free to use whichever spirit you prefer.
• 2 oz gin or vodka
• ½ oz dry vermouth
• ½ oz olive brine
• 1 dropperful Tribe CBD oil
• 1 - 2 olives
• Pour gin or vodka, dry vermouth, and olive brine in a stirring glass
• Add an ice cube and stir until well chilled
• Strain into a pre-chilled martini glass
• Top with an olive garnish and Tribe CBD oil
It’s no secret that the dirty martini is one of the saltiest cocktails in the books. On average, this briny beverage has a staggering 785 mg of sodium per serving. For reference, the FDA recommends Americans have just 2,300 mg of salt per day. So, if you have just three servings of this drink, then you’ve gone over your daily limit.
Well, to be honest, you’ve probably already gone over that 2,300 mg cutoff by dinnertime. Recent stats suggest most Americans consume around 3,400 mg of salt per day. Unfortunately, diets that are higher in salt are often associated with a greater risk of hypertension.
If you’re concerned about your salt intake, you may want to skip this dirty martini recipe. Dieticians also recommend cooking at home to better control how much sodium you eat. If possible, always opt for unseasoned meats and veggies so you know exactly how much salt is going into each meal.
