Remember though stirred not shaken. Shaking can create a cloudy martini.

And to many cloudy martinis can cause cloudy vision.

Happy New Year,

JDP

I much prefer mine shaken, and shaken vigorously (at least 30 shakes, but more is better). I have never notices it being cloudy. Well maybe right after it is poured, but a few seconds later it clears up, unlike my vision

Off thread subject, but vodka oriented. Sorry, JDP, Buck and I had Grey Goose martinis last night before dinner that were shaken. 30 times no less. They were definitely not cloudy nor was our vision. Just a fantastic, sm-o-o-th martini. About the best we've ever had. Will do it again. Go Grey Goose!!! Thanks, GB.

I like my martinis with gin and dirty.

But, on topic (sort of), I think the flavored vodka thing is sort of out of control. I saw at least 20 flavors at the store the other day.

Also, if you can find, there is a whole bunch of Russian pepper vodkas.

I like flavoured vodkas (I often make them my self).
I have a bottle if "Inferno" pepper pot vodka in my freezer right now. It is a bottle that came with a long red pepper in the bottle - the longer I have it the darker (and hotter) the vodka gets.
I love using it for Ceasers and drinking it very cold straight is good too. Not for the faint of heart!

I bet these are good, Charlie. Not a big vodka drinker but I do like a shot of the peppery stuff now and then.

Does Stoli make one, or should I keep searching?
