Octopus Garden


This is a thing?

*Still shaking head*

Yes. The Octopus Garden should just be called the Octopus Martini; that's all it is. And smoked baby octopus really adds a great scent as a garnish, so much so, I'd rather have it in vodka than bury it in a spicy gin. The recipe also calls for a black olive, which after the octopus seems unnecessary.
  • 3 oz. vodka or gin
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • smoked baby octopus
  • black olive
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the octopus and olive.
