A play on a dirty martini, La Sucia is a balanced cocktail that is both briny & crisp, and something you could enjoy at either the beginning or the end of a meal.

This cocktail was first runner up at the 2016 U.S. Sherry Cocktail Competition.



La Sucia

In a mixing glass, muddle cucumber wheels, agave, olive brine, & orange bitters. Combine the rest of the ingredients & top with ice. Mix until well chilled & then strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with a marinated cerignola olive & express an orange peel over the glass. Discard peel & serve.
