Cajun Martini

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1 ounce pepper infused vodka Absolut Peppar or make your own
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 3 olives


  • Add the pepper-infused vodka, regular vodka, and vermouth to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a cocktail glass.
  • Place the three olives in the empty shaker and add the Tabasco sauce. Gently shake the olives to coat them with the hot sauce. Spear the olives and use to garnish the martini.


Control the spiciness by adjusting the ratio of pepper-infused vodka used in the drink. You can make your own pepper vodka by following this recipe.
For a lemony twist, try swapping in Absolut Citron (or another lemon-infused vodka) for the regular vodka. The pairing of lemon and chili pepper works well.
