There are so many things I like about the Dirty Hornitini. First, the name is just plain fun, then there is the mix of tequila and olive brine - which is very interesting and almost equal to gin, but not quite. Basically, this is a twist on both the Tequini and the Dirty Martini and Hornitos Reposado is a great tequila choice for this. I would, however, suggest cutting the olive juice from that suggested in the recipe - too much olive can be too much - and not considering the bitters optional - they are essential.

It's all about the olive juice! Again!!, Member MikeK33

You have to find a quality juice if you want a quality drink. 3BAR olive juice is the best I have found. You can try their olives as well. Amazon.
