We all have a favourite drink, so what's yours.

Long Island Iced Tea or just a regular cup of tea.

Long or Short.

Hot or cold.

The choice is yours.

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!

Bourbon (Maker's Mark).

I drink anything that don't have to be chewed. At the moment I'm into bourbon. I prefer Maker's Mark if I can lay my hands on a bottle. I also like black rum. Beer is great too. And water (tap water or Ramlösa Original). Juice from time to time.

We have a very simple martini recipe: buy some good quality gin, keep it in the freezer, and add only the memory of the thought of the smell of some vermouth.

NB if following this recipe you may need to remember to wear oven gloves while taking the lid off the gin bottle, cos sticking to the metal kinda hurts.

You know ciara I think this thread is for drinks a little bit stronger than your average yoohoo. Lets, see last night I distinctly remember a B-52 and White wine. the B-52 was better though.

Fruitygirlsandy,
Iceburgs do float on sparkly water. Stay away from that roof beer though, you could fall and break something.

Mudslide with Chocolate Soy milk.

barring that, a semi-dry vodka martini. shaken, not stirred.

And maybe some of Dr. Brown's celery-flavored soda.

Ms. Helen, your next drink's on me. literally. Spill City.
