Dirty Sue Cocktail Competition
We first learned about Dirty Sue a while back, and we were pretty impressed with the concept of an olive brine designed solely for mixing drinks. For one thing, we're keen on the idea of using something the bartender's fingers haven't been in to fish out olives. For two things...well, the first thing is probably enough - we're fans of the fact our martinis can be filthy without containing any actual filth.
We were reintroduced to the concept of the stuff by a post by Jeffrey Morgenthaler about a contest he's judging for Dirty Sue, where you just have to submit a cocktail recipe featuring at least 1/4 ounce of the stuff. All entries have to be in by March 22, so you'd better get cracking, because the prizes are pretty damn cool. More info at the link above.

If you want a dirty martini that isn't actually dirty, you should filter your martini through a some kitchen paper/a paper towel, placed in a strainer. It take a couple minutes for the cocktail to soak through, but its definately worth it for the visual appeal (esp if you like a really really dirty martini).
