    one of my favorite stories and quotes about martinis from a fellow pipe smoker (Gerald Ford):

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-martini_lunch

    Jimmy Carter condemned the practice during the 1976 presidential campaign.[1] 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".[5] 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?"[1][6]

    Have a The Mister Moo Only Real Martini!

    3 oz. Bombay Dry (or Beefeaters London Dry) Gin
    1/2 oz dry vermouth
    Lemon twist

    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.

    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.
