This is the perfect Dirty Martini Mocktail– non alcoholic vodka and dry vermouth with olive brine and an olive garnish. It is the perfect level of saltiness and so easy to make. Always add an even amount of olives, it is bad luck if you don’t (or so they say).

Try my Espresso Martini Mocktail too! If you love olives like me try my Olive Dip for an appetizer to this mocktail.

Why This Is The BEST Non Alcoholic Martini Mocktail

  • IT’S DIRTY! All this means is that it has olive brine in it for an addicting salty note. You can easily make this without the olive though.
  • CLASSIC MARTINI FLAVOR without the alcohol. I guarantee you won’t even miss the alcohol because we use authentic tasting non alcoholic spirits.
  • ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS, 4 if you include the olive garnish.
  • GREAT ALCOHOL FREE DRINK for pregnancy, sober curious, or those who cannot or should not consume alcohol for whatever reason.

What Is A Dirty Martini Mocktail?

A Dirty Martini Mocktail is the non alcoholic version of a Dirty Martini, of course! The Dirty Martini is a classic cocktail which was believed to be originated in New York in the early 1900’s.

Typically a Dirty Martini contains vodka (or gin), dry vermouth, olive brine, and an olive garnish. This mocktail contains all those things, except the alcohol removed vodka and dry vermouth spirits. It still has the same classic flavor profile, don’t worry!

Let’s Make It Together In Under 30 Seconds

Dirty Martini Mocktail Ingredients

  • Non Alcoholic Vodka: I used Arkay for this recipe. Other varieties include Strykk and CleanCo.
  • Non Alcoholic Dry Vermouth: I used Seedlip Spice 94 and even though it isn’t labeled as vermouth it does a great job mimicking the flavor notes. You could also use this NA Vermouth from Lyres.
  • Green Olive Brine: This is what makes a martini “dirty” and it is just the liquid from the olive jar.
  • Green Olives: Use your favorite brand and variety. This recipe uses plain pitted olives, but you could use bleu cheese stuffed olives, spicy, or even marinated olives.

NOTE: Non alcoholic spirits are just like alcoholic spirits, some taste better than others. We all have different flavor preferences which is why I like to give multiple options. I give my recommendations, BUT at the end of the day I want to help you find which non alcoholic spirits you prefer.

Equipment Needed

  • Martini Glasses or any type of small glassware.
  • Cocktail Shaker or large glass.
  • Stirrer or long spoon.
  • Cocktail Pins for holding olive garnish in place.

    I’m so glad I found this mocktail recipe. I love a dirty martini whilst I’m cooking but it’s just too strong for an everyday drink! Making it non-alcoholic means I can enjoy as many as I want. I loved it
