If you really want to get down and dirty, try a Dirty Dry Martini at Trees Lounge during Martini Madness hours.
Every night, from 5 to 7 p.m., Trees Lounge serves some pretty epic martinis starting at $5.
“You can have it with gin or vodka,” said owner Mark Myers, adding that it normally costs $7 and up for a martini.
But not during Martini Madness, when one of America’s most perfect drinks flies off the bar for those seeking a seep of what writer E. B. White (Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little and others) once called “the elixir of quietude.”
Trees’ Dirty Dry Martini has 2 ounces of vodka of your choice, served on the rocks with a generous portion of olive juice, and of course, two olives.
Because it is a “dry” martini, the vermouth should stay on the shelf, as far as possible from the martini.
