Serges, I think those we almost ALL girly drinks :)

But that Broadhammer sounds great, I'm gonna have to try it :)

This is as good as the Sleuth Cookbook thread, we should post good drink recipes in here!

As an Aussie I should probably say someone give us a Fosters or a XXXX (that's a popular brand of beer in the northern states here.) but really I could live without it. Beer is for bbq's, sporting events, and a safety measure at seedy bars where you'd get stabbed if you ordered a drink that required an umbrella.

If someone wants to give me a Cointreau on ice, or a Gin & Tonic, that'll be fine. I'm a man of simple tastes. If I wanted a nasty shot, I'd have an old fashioned B52, and if push comes to shove I'd even settle for a bottled lollywater drink like a lemon Ruski. :)

Anyone have a good martini recipe? Just got my martini set today and need to make a run for the liquor store. NO IDEA what to get.

The Martini is a very basic drink. Gin with a very small amount (one drop, possibly two) of dry vermouth. Some people even forego the vermouth completely. Put your shot of Gin in a shaker with some ice, add the vermouth, if desired. Then, as we all know from James Bond, you can either shake the Martini or use a bar spoon and stir it. Some people believe shaking the Martini "bruises" the liquor. After a few seconds of shaking or stirring, pour the liquir out of the shaker through a strainer (leaving the ice in the shaker) and into a Martini glass (preferrably chilled). Add an olive on a toothpick and you have the Classic Martini. Absolutely MUST have the appropriate glass. It's all in the presentation. :)

Bottoms up!
