Great pics Greg. I prefer Beefeaters to Bombay, but they are both good gins. In fact, I'm drinking one now.

Groovy glass. I'm with Griff on this one. Beefeaters I think is better also. Save the cheap stuff for the blender. Bombay is not that cheap ether. They are both good, but when it comes down to a good martini, I'll take Beefeaters.

Re: For the GIN lovers!!

That was a nice looking drink! I had one once, didn't care for it. I'll take bourbon instead.

Re: For the GIN lovers!!

Now I likes my gin mixed with Grapefruit juice and salt. I tried to drink a Martini one time down in Wise County. The dumb imbred barmaid mixed me and a pal up one made out of Gin and Scotch. The confusion apparently arose when the other imbred dumb barmaid tole the lady to use Gin and the stuff in the Green bottle. Which I think she meant Vermouf or something but the Gin also come in a green bottle. That combo can trigger a puke reflex just to touch the lips. Now this old crusty yankee from Wisconsin who I used to fish with a lot also carry a half gallon jug of Vodka down in the ice chest. He axe you if you want a martini..he snag the jug and everybody take a big pull and he would start singing Eyetalian Opera Songs at the top of his lungs. Maybe thats why we neva caught many fish. Swear there has been some evenings coming in after a hard day of fishing and having Martinis when it was difficult to find the shore and it aint a very big lake. Always glad he did the driving.

Re: For the GIN lovers!!

I'd like mine in a VERY tall glass, some ice, tonic and a squeeze of real lime.

I'd like it now, please.

Has anyone tried a Dirty Martini? It's the drink of the twenty-something crowd.

Same as a regular Martini with the addition of some of the olive juice. I'm learning to like it.

Re: For the GIN lovers!!

Mar, I have had dirty Martini's before...if you like olives (and I do) it adds a nice flavor. But usually I like the standard dry Martini.

Oh yea, a Dirty Martini. We are lucky to have some pals that own http://www.louiesdeli.com/ They get those huge green olives in a five gallon bucket, when there all gone, we get the brine and put it in the fridge at the club house.

This is a hard liquor thread. I prefer Knob Creek bourbon. Some one gave me a bottle of Blanton's bourbon last week, but I haven't cracked it yet.
