Ingredients needed to make a The Monday Night Martini
2 1/2 oz vodka
a drop and a bit of vermouth
The Monday Night Martini Cocktail Recipe Directions
Let vodka and vermouth sit in a cocktail shaker filled with ice while you make a grilled cheese sandwich. Then shake and pour mixture into a martini glass, over a pickled garnish.
My wife and I like a martini on Monday night, because Mondays are hard days. I prefer mine with vodka and cocktail onions, which means, I think, that I like vodka gibsons. Either way, because it's Monday and supplies are low, I usually make mine with whatever pickled vegis are on hand -- tonight's was a spicey gherkin. I drank this with a grilled cheese sandwich.

That would be a Dirty Gibson. I submitted a gin version of a Dirty Gibson earlier in the year. Feel free to use the Drink search above to check it out, or find it through my profle. -JJ
The last martini I made I used the cocktail onion brine instead of vermouth and that ended up way tasty. And as clear as can be. Would that be a "dirty onion"?
I like Martini Mondays, although I like mine with a lemon twist. I don’t like pickles but think I’d like to try a “Dirty Pickle” mostly for the name!
I remember those olives, often and fondly.
Yes, Gibsons (though I've never had one, i never, sadly have cocktail onions around)! I'm a gin man, myself but am a fan of the less traditional garnishes. Once had these green olives with hot red peppers that came out of them... one of my fave garnishes. Nice addition.
@Bartender yah, thanks, meant gibson when I typed gimlet, having already finished my martini! Appropriate edits made...
If you prefer onions in your "martini", then you are drinking a "Gibson". A gimlet is vodka ice and lime juice, or gin and the same. It's a "Pickle Martini" if it has a gherkin garnish, and a "Dirty Pickle" if you use pickle juice with your gin/vodka, and vermouth. Either way, Mondays are tough, and a Martini in any variety will cure what ails you! Nice upload. -Bartender
