Really cheap vile vodka. Cheap vermouth too.

Really good ice.

Does anyone drink a stirred martini anymore or did Bond ruin that?

That's not a real Martini so we will have to ask you fake questions.

What do you have against good gin? Also, is it true what people are saying about you and Lance Armstrong and the whole Sheryl Crow break-up thing?

I have a shaker but don't usually use it.

I like it on the rocks and usually I think of a martini made in a shaker being served in a martini glass. ( UP I think it's called.)

Since you're out of gin, may I recommend to you, my favourite gin, since you have to go shopping anyway...

I know it's not really a Martini but it's close enough. :p

I like good gin. Boodles. Tanqueray 10. Bombay.

I'm just really cheap.

And yes, I came between Lance and Cheryl. Lance saw me in spandex....need I say more.....:cool:

I was asked to make a martini on the rocks once and was baffled for a moment. Most people don't drink them that way.

I remember you mentioned Hendricks before and I'd like to try it.

I'll give it a shot. What vermouth do you like?

Call my Philadelphia lawyer. I think she has copies.

I don't drink Martinis, so I can't really tell you how it would be in one.

But it makes a KILLER G&T.

Cool. Thanks.

Schweppes is my favorite.

Someone I know mentioned Fever Tree but I've never seen it.

Gin and Tonic is a favorite of mine in warm weather. I guess you get plenty of that in AZ.

Well, sometimes these things have to be said. We're all friends here and friends don't let friends drink vodka martinis. It's still summer - it's not like he couldn't make one of those vodka/fruit drinks. :D

You're right. SO, I'll give it a new name.

Vodka, vermouth, and an olive. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you....

There are two reasons to make Jello shooters.

A. You have a lot minors who would otherwise throw up.

B. You have women.

I looked for Hendricks at the Jihadi Liquor Store run by the Taliban looking guy today and they didn't carry it.

I'll have to go to a real liquor store I guess.

I got something cheap.

Now I'm drinking gin and tonic. Ask me anything.

I was with a couple ladies last weekend that were drinking/eating Jello shots.

For a minute, I thought the band was finished with it's first set.Then I quickly found out that they were just waiting a minute until the train went by. At that point, I knew I was in the middle of BFE.

A couple years ago, I knew a group of ladies that got together for Jello Shots...they always had fun & lots of flavors.

Indeed! :D The olives are stuffed with garlic!!!

I got a set of four. Three have a base that is purple (Royal) in color and the
fourth is blue.

We got these at a store in La Jolla that donates to animal rescue, it's a
consignment shop.

There isn't room in the freezer for the vodka hence the cubes...:o

Those are nice glasses. Olives with garlic. Haven't tried that.

I once had a vodka martini served with a chilled shrimp and a shot of tabasco. Not bad. There was a name for it but I forget.

Hendricks is da shizznit. Way different to and way better than the Bomghey Sapph / Gordons / Tanq crap. And it's made in Scotlandshire and comes in a yay cool bottle.

There's nothing wrong with Bombay Sapphire although Hendricks has a certain "something" that no gin drinker should miss. At least on special occasions. We break it out for the 3 people who fear aquavit at Christmas. :D
