I haven't bothered to count, but I am getting the impression that most you are putting gin into your martini glass. I have only one thing to say to that:

Stop it! You're killing me. I'll trade my dusty bottle of Tanguery to anyone who wants it. What do you have in trade?

DIBS!!!! I call DIBS on the gin!!!!

After all, Vera laid claim to a bottle of my bourbon a while back! (And I still haven't opened it! )


As for me, I like vodka or gin, but I do prefer Vodka.

Yeah, been lurking around a bit - not posting so much. been on the go most of the year so far, and heading out of town again tomorrow. At least this trip is for R&R, so there will be martinis (or a suitable stand in) involved.

One proper martini is the receipe suggested by Sir Winston Churchill - take the bottle of gin from the freezer and show it the bottle of vermouth in passing...

I learned to drink martinis from my ex-mother-in-law, Marge. A proper Marge-tini is made with 1/2 shot of dry vermouth poured over ice in a shaker. Add 4 ponys of cold gin. Gently shake, strain from the shaker into a glass with two olives.

Bombay Blue is the martini gin, and Tanqueray is the G&T gin, but can be used in a pinch for the Marge-tini

You know what they call gin here in England? Mothers ruin.

When I first moved here last year we went to a really nice restaurant for dinner. I ordered a martini from the bar and he thought I meant the brand of vermouth they serve called "Martini"

Ive yet to have a proper vodka martini here, so I just get vodka on the rocks ...oh how I miss home!!

Bob, what's a pony? And don't say something silly like; a hooved quadraped.

A Pony Is Not an Equine Animal in this regard...

Sorry, Buck,

That is probably just local lingo from growing up. A pony is a jigger, ie, a shot and a half... Don't ask me how it got that nickname...
