Bombay Saphire and 2 olives. So dry that vermouth is a whisper in a far corner.

Our new passion is Damrak, with only a twist. It's from Amsterdam and is much less junipery - it has a subtle orange flavor!

Vodka is Bob's choice, loves Stoli. I like a vodka martini now and then - and especially with Trader Joe's Monopolowa vodka.

Vodka here. Rinse the glass with vermouth. Pour in vodka, add olives. Cheers!

Gimme a V....odka! It's all about the vodka. I love Ciroc - vodka made from grapes!


and always with a twist. Olives belong with the bread and cheese...

After being a devout vodka drinker for years, with Stoli leading the way, I decided to give a real martini a try; did my research, tried a couple of different brands and was suprisingly satisfied with Bombay gin (regular and Saphyre). I do like some vermouth in my martini and requisite two olives, plump, preferably filled with garlic or anchovies (my husband won't come close to the fishy ones though).

So, on Saturday afternoons we alternate between vodka and gin martinis, depending on the mood.
