Updated: Sep 21


Hakuna Ma'Vodka – it means no worries, Toast with Miami Living Magazine for National Vodka Day on Oct. 4!

Toast Distillers, Inc., is a Black-owned, Miami-based spirits conglomerate best-known for its ultra-premium vodka, Toast™ Vodka. Toast Vodka is the world’s first ultra-premium, unflavored vodka made with coconut water. The vodka is 100% corn based, six times distilled, gluten-free and non-GMO. 

Established by CEO and founder Dieuveny “DJ” Jean Louis, the company’s profile includes a full range of ultra-premium to midline and well-line spirits products for vodka, rum, gin, tequila and whiskey.

In celebration of National Vodka Day, Toast Vodka mixologists have shared their secret for making the perfect Dirty Martini:

  • For the perfect dirty martini, we recommend using Toast™ Vodka due to its smooth drinkability and soft, gentle mouthfeel, which results in a silky sophisticated martini.

  • The next ingredient with a starring role is the vermouth. Think of a crisp, lightly acidic glass of white wine that has been aromatized with soft herbs, botanicals, and spices, then fortified with distilled alcohol to raise the alcohol by volume and preserve the flavors.

  • Now on to the olives and olive brine. This is where you can have a little fun with your garnish. *Pro tip: Try Castelvetrano olives, they are one of our personal favorites!

  • The last, and perhaps most important, ingredient is ice. Use should use large ice cubes, if possible.

Directions:

  • Stir all of the ingredients in a mixing glass, but even a pint glass will work in a pinch. First, add 2 oz. of Toast vodka to the mixing glass. 

  • Next, add .5 oz. of dry vermouth and olive brine to the glass. 

  • Add just enough ice to cover the liquid. When you start stirring, you’ll the ice drop below the liquid line and the glass will get nice and cold. As soon as this happens, strain the liquid into a previously frozen coupe or martini glass. Make sure to quickly strain the liquid so that you do not over dilute the cocktail.

  • Garnish the martini with an olive skewer, and sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. Toast vodka

  • .5 oz. dry vermouth

  • .5 oz. olive brine

  • Olives to garnish
