    Ice Cold Vodka. Olives. A little cocktail onion. A moment of silence for the vermouth.

    You should have a drink, be a little less angry.

    Mrs. Estocada has been sick the last few days. I'm hoping she will feel up to a little sexual harassment tonight.

    Stevie finds himself sucking cock when he gets impaired or so I have heard.

    Sorry, any Martini worth drinking is made with Gin.

    I know gin has its die hard fans and I've tried, with several quality gins, to make it work but I'm just a vodka man. Sorry, in the spirit of friendly drunkenness, you bring your bottle and I'll bring mine.

    If you're using cocktail olive and onion, that's a Martini Salad, I believe .... :grad:

    Personally I prefer a nice Gin Gimlet, or Pink Lady. Gin and Tonic's always nice on a hot afternoon, too.

    In reality, I ended up just making a shaken goose with a whisper of onion juice, no olive or actual onion involved. Next one will be different, most likely.

    And yes, a gin and tonic is a great summer drink. Just am not down with the gin martini.

    Do you have a gin of choice and/or martini recipe? I'll give it another try.

    The only time I like gin is in a Long Island Iced Tea.

    A Gimlet on a Sunny afternoon is just the ticket. Salude.

    It's fine, just don't serve it in one of those gay glasses.
