Clean Up Your Filthy Martini

We all love a dirty martini, now and again. However, an unhygienic martini is something we can certainly live without.

Think about it. You go to your favorite joint. You order a dirty martini, with an olive (or two). The bartender digs his or her fingers into the jar (which could have been hanging around the bar for a week or so), skewers the olives and pours a little of that juice into your drink. Have you ever asked yourself how many times any number of bartenders have dipped their hands into that same jar?

This is why martini lovers everywhere are thanking God for Dirty Sue!

The L.A.-based company was started by a couple of our very own local bartenders Eric Tecosky & Terry Fradet. During a shift at the stylishly casual Jones Hollywood the pair pondered why no one had thought of bottling quality olive brine before. Here we are a year later and the duo are impressing the swizzle sticks off of cocktail lovers and bartenders, everywhere. (They even got picked up by BevMo – the Disneyland of liquor shopping!)

You can also buy it directly off their website, and while you’re there pick up an adorable Dirty Sue t-shirt for the lady in your life. Who wouldn’t want to wear the Dirty Sue pin up girl across their knockers? Other than martinis, “dirty” is but a state of mind…
