Help that lady out of the glass, I believe she's stuck.
lose the damn avatar, my mom drinks martinis
We appear to have a 'berg in training...
I found a pic of Timmy's mom:
one of my favorite stories and quotes about martinis from a fellow pipe smoker (Gerald Ford):
Jimmy Carter condemned the practice during the 1976 presidential campaign. Carter portrayed it as part of the unfairness in the nation's tax laws, claiming that the working class was subsidizing the "$50 martini lunch". This was because a "rich businessman" could write off this type of lunch as a business expense.
His opponent, incumbent President Gerald R Ford responded with: "The three-martini lunch is the epitome of American efficiency. Where else can you get an earful, a bellyful and a snootful at the same time?"
Have a The Mister Moo Only Real Martini!
3 oz. Bombay Dry (or Beefeaters London Dry) Gin
1/2 oz dry vermouth
Rub lemon peel over glass rim and plop it in a large-ish martini cocktail glass.
Combine gin and vermouth over copius crushed ice in a cocktain shaker - shake 10 seconds, strain into glass.
Sip, pensively, while observing the improving clarity of the cocktail as ice bits slowly dissolve, softening the cocktail while keeping it cold.
I'm a Gin martini fan myself, none of that vodka crap
Seriously. A bunch of 1990's fru-fru schoolgirl-bartenders imagined there was something in a martini besides gin, vermouth and/or a lemon twist and it caught on like herpes. Vodka-martini cocktail makes as much sense as hamburger-scissors pecan pie.
Appletini.... I cringe.
I don't dislike vodka/vermouth/rocks/chilled/olive/twist combos - but "martini" it is not.
Somebody has to stand up for the honest martini. That's the way it is.
He may have a similar anatomy.
I WOULD post a picture of my mother, but I'm not even going to subject myself to the comments I would undoubtedly endure my whole time here.
Keep posting, another 3,000 will come quick!
Congrats, I want a MARTINI !!!!!
Am I too late I heard Smokey Joe was giving out FREE Martuinies
Just keep on keeping on 6000 is only 3000 away.
