Note:

"DOLIN" not DOLAN"

And it does make a difference.

I don't use soda in my cocktails although I once went through a scotch and soda period. I do buy Pellegrino when it's on coupon at Costco. For my G&Ts, I like Schweppes diet tonic.

Some gin is vile but good gin is good. I suppose they invented vodka for the wusses who can't handle gin...

I no longer drink, but when I did, I was of the opinion that all you needed for martinis was a half gallon of Beefeaters and a water glass. As long as there was some vermouth within a mile or so, that was okay.

Yep. The two ingredients are as follows:

- Chilled gin

- A moment of silence for the vermouth


How simple can it be?

Soda ruins Scotch.. IMNSHO.

I have tried all manner of Tonics to include Q and the other foo foo stuff too include TREE... I prefer, and am currently sipping, a Hendricks and Diet Schweppes.

According to one survey of Bartenders and booze geeks, Schweppes was the far ahead choice of Tonics for cocktails and many preferred Schweppes Diet as do I.

FWIW Avoid SHASTA Tonic.. vile.

Tanqueray for me, it's got a bite to it. Had a couple T&Ts on Christmas Eve, very nice.

And that's what I use for my occasional martini. I chill the glass in the freezer first, and then shake up the gin & ice in a vintage cocktail shaker. I take the glass out of the freezer, pour a bit of vermouth in and swirl it around the glass and then pour it out in the sink. Pour in the gin and throw in 4-5 olives and there you go.

Our old friend Blues Beat and I have a private joke: martinis are like women's breasts- one is not enough, and three are too many.

Shake Vodka, stir Gin. .

Martini without vermouth (ie "dry") is not a Martini but gin rocks.

That according to the experts

I shake my gin/ice in a bar shaker. I pour a very small amount of vermouth in my martini glass and swish it around, then I dump the vile liquid down the bar sink. I add my chilled gin and no less than 3 olives and I'm good to go.

I've been skiing all day and am very, very tired. Feel like I've been hit by a truck.

I can see, oh, maybe three T&Ts in my near future. Gotta ease the pain.

Another vermouth method is to take a standard toothpick.. dip it in the "vile liquid".. shake the droplet off the pick.. then stir the toothpick in the gin.


Portion control.

Interesting stuff. I'm imbibing as we speak (type) with a Tanq and Diet Schweppes with a generous squeezed slice of lime in a Baccarat Harmonie large Old Fashioned glass. It's working for me. ;o)
