AI Request:Create a drink based on the following profile: Dirty Vodka martini is the usual go to, but I also like gin and tonics. I try to stay away from things that are real sweet, but I enjoy more bitter flavors. I also enjoy margaritas. I am allergic to grapefruit. Something strong to sip is perfect.

Instructions

Description: Arctic Botanist's Twist is a cocktail that captures the crisp strength of a dirty vodka martini, the botanicals of a gin and tonic, and the tang of a margarita, all while embracing a bitter edge for a sophisticated palate. Perfect for sipping, this strong, herb-inflected drink avoids sweetness and grapefruit to cater to both your taste preferences and dietary needs. Ingredients: - 2 oz Botanical Gin (a gin infused with additional herbs and spices) - 0.5 oz Dry Vermouth - 0.5 oz Olive Brine (for that dirty martini character) - 0.25 oz Fresh Lime Juice (substituting for lemon to incorporate a margarita twist) - 0.25 oz Cointreau (or any other triple sec, just enough to bridge the botanicals and lime) - 2 dashes of Orange Bitters (to enhance the complexity without sweetness) - Garnish: Cocktail Olive and a Sprig of Rosemary or Thyme Glass: - Chilled Nick & Nora or Martini Glass Method: 1. Chill your Nick & Nora or martini glass by placing it in the freezer or filling it with ice water and setting it aside. 2. In a mixing glass filled with ice, combine the botanical gin, dry vermouth, olive brine, fresh lime juice, Cointreau, and orange bitters. 3. Stir the mixture for 30-40 seconds until well-chilled; this will also dilute the drink slightly, to reach the perfect sipping strength and smoothness. 4. Dispose of the ice or water in your now chilled glass. 5. Strain the cocktail into the chilled glass, ensuring a smooth pour. 6. For garnish, skewer a cocktail olive onto a pick and add a sprig of rosemary or thyme for an aromatic herbal touch. 7. Serve promptly and enjoy the crisp, complex layers of your Arctic Botanist's Twist. This drink balances the robustness of gin with the brininess of a dirty martini and the citrus element of a margarita, minus the sweetness, while ensuring that the flavors remain strong and sippable—a true delight for any cocktail connoisseur.
