Dirty Martini

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Great for those who like vodka with olives. I like both but not together. I agree with the bartenders that some jar brine is laced with preservatives so choose carefully. I like Gin with a lemon twist and these days I have to be very explicit when I instruct the bartenders or I find olives in my drink. I suppose the olive crowd has taken over :-)

Out of all the tzatziki recipes this is the most authentic. Some people like it runny, some like it thicker. You can buy strained yogurt or you can make it yourself using a strainer and "basket" coffee filters if you don't have cheese cloth. Another way to make the water stay in the cucumbers, is not to grate them but dice them with a knife. This way you get a more crunchy consistency as well. I see no need for a food processor, in fact it may mess up the texture. You can use some sour cream as well to enhance the flavor. This is a Greek-American variation that makes tzatziki richer and smooths out some favors. Great dip for vegetables. Take care!
