How To Make Vegan Dirty Martini Pasta

A Dirty Martini is a classic cocktail made with vodka or gin, dry vermouth, and olive brine, typically garnished with olives. Taking inspiration from this cocktail, a Dirty Martini Pasta is a pasta dish that incorporates these flavors.

“This is like, if you took a dirty martini and made it into a pasta,” says TikTok creator @legallyhealthyblonde, who created the recipe.”I know I’m not the only one obsessed with dirty martinis and obsessed with pasta, and so I am trusting this going to find the right people.”

I’m so excited to share my tasty vegan version of this incredible dirty martini pasta recipe!

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 2
  • 4 oz pasta spaghetti, linguini or other long pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10 green Castelvetro or Manzanilla olives, finely chopped
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp vodka or gin
  • 1½ tbsp olive brine
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp plant-based butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Crumbled vegan cheese of choice ( the original recipe calls for blue cheese)
  • Parsley, freshly chopped
  1. Bring a stockpot of salted water to a boil, and boil the pasta until all dente, as directed on the package. Reserve 1//2 cup of the pasta water and drain, or time it so that you can add the pasta directly from the pot to the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic and cook until slightly fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the olives and lemon zest, and cook until the garlic turns slightly golden, but not brown or else it will be bitter.
  4. Deglaze the pan with vodka or gin, stirring constantly. Cook until no you no longer smell alcohol.
  5. Stirring, add the brine, lemon juice, and butter until combined.
  6. Add cooked pasta to the pan, and stir to coat the pasta in the sauce. Add reserved pasta water, as needed 1 tbsp at a time until the sauce is velvety and pasta is coated. Simmer for 1-2 minutes, then, taste and season with salt and lots of pepper.
  7. Serve garnished with some chopped olives, parsley, lemon zest and cheese, if using.
