    Whoa whoa whoa, watch what you're saying about bourbon! I think you might be getting the flavors of 'hate' confused with the flavors of sweet, sweet love.

    I would also like to note that diet tonic water is immensely superior to regular tonic water. It is the same exact recipe minus the corn syrup, so it lacks that cloying taste of the regular stuff.

    I think as long as you're careful to choose quality liquor, almost anything is enjoyable neat. That said, my palate is apparently not civilized enough to appreciate Scotch, because eeeeeek. I think it burned out my sinus cavity when I tried.

    Has anyone tried this?

    It's a beer aged in Jim Beam barrels.

    Yeah, I first had their stuff when I was interning on the East coast, and it took another year for it to finally show up in Michigan where I went to school. It was a year filled with desperation.

    What kind of Allagash do they have on tap? Six dollah is pretty steep for twelve ounces, even by Fancy Beer Standards.

    Yeah I know it's complex and all that but let's be honest, the flavor is closest to peat. That's just not a flavor I find particularly tasty.

    I think that same stuff you posted. The bar is really quite terribly overpriced but they have a lot of really good stuff on tap and a lot of incredibly beautiful waitresses.

    Scotch was the first Liquor I had straight without just shooting it at a party.

    I instantly became a fan. I think I had about 5 glasses of the shit, while trying to remain not a drunkard to my extended family.


    I still can't take Vodka, Gin, or Rum straight up. Scotch, Bourbon, Whiskey? Even low quality shit I can take straight just fine.

    Straight, pure vodka is pretty rough. Gin and Rum have enough sweetness that the aftertaste is pretty good. Vodka aftertaste can often be aptly described as rubbing alcohol.

    Last trade show I went to, the bartender at the Sheraton was real nice to me. I ordered a gin martini, very dry, no olives, and a very thin lemon peel and he actually did it correctly.

    Then I got back and ordered the same thing in a local bar, and the fucking plebeian mixing the drinks drops in a full ounce of vermouth, then takes out a slice of lemon, pulls out the pulp with his bare hands, and drops the still-dripping rind into my glass. I would have thrown it straight in his face if it wasn't the end of the cash in my wallet and after 1am so no hitting another bar.

    If you have to specify Gin Martini there's a problem

    For the record, real men drink Vodka neat because they get good vodka that can be enjoyed neat. When I order vodka at a bar they know not to give me a chaser because I select good shit, they don't even drop a lime in that shit, especially if they know my tastes as it is at a couple of my favorite establishments. Good neat vodkas are Monopolowa, Russian Standard, Stolichnaya, Grey Goose, Tito's, and Ketel One.


    Now, that said, I want to give you guys a recipe for awesome.

    REQUIREMENTS:

    One (1)
    martini shaker. Now, I've mixed a few martinis in my time in dixie cups, where the vermouth was splashed in on top of gin and "mixed" by dropping an icecube in at a height of about a foot and calling it good. This is fine when you're at a Goddamn party drinking to get stoned. Not for this drink, so please, get a Goddamn shaker. If you take drinking somewhat seriously, and if you're reading this thread I assume you do, you owe it to yourself to get a shaker. Its one of those things you buy once in a lifetime.

    Two (2)
    A fresh Lemon. Not some half thats been wrapped in plastic and sitting in your vegetable crisper for a week. Fresh, son, get some fresh Goddamn produce. Even if you don't like the cocktail I'll have at least cultured you some by the end of this post.

    Three (3)
    Some kind of drinking receptacle, you don't need a martini glass for this because real men don't give a shit. Done giving a shit about presentation and other boring things that make drinking a chore? Good. Now, if you've got martini glasses, and you've got guests, break them out, but if you're gonna be drinking just to test this out or largely by your lonesome nobody gives a fuck, and I'm not gonna demand it of you. What counts is the stuff in the glass.

    Four (4)
    Aviation Gin, its a "Dutch style" gin, made with a variety of spices, and is not overwhelmingly piney as most London Dry "English" gins happen to be. I've made a lot of people appreciate gin by giving them my famous pick me up: aviation gin, tonic, and fresh spearmint leaves over ice.

    Five (5)
    Now you need a quality grain vodka, I mean, you could try potato vodka, but I've never tried it, so I just stand by "quality grain" as the standard. "Quality" is an important word here, because it does not imply bank-breaking price and perfection, merely quality. This is a very important aspect because the aforementioned gin is rather delicate, and if you put some plastic-jug level shit in the mix you'll probably blot the subtleties out, which is half the reason I advocate this drink. All of the vodkas I listed in the above vodka rant qualify except Monopolowa, which is a Polish potato vodka, notably awesome in Bloody Marys or over a single ice cube in a tumbler but not so much in martinis. Mostly, my aim here is that you don't blend harder liquors of different sources. Gin is grain, so your vodka should be grain. My preference for this cocktail I am about to detail is Russian Standard, its a cheaper, better, Stolichnaya, and for Fuck's Sake, store it at room temperature.

    Six (6)
    The last step is the hardest. You need some Lillet. Its a french desert wine, and I know there was some kind of hullaballoo about proper lillet and all of this dogshit and listen, I'm not gonna tell you to break your bank on a wine that hasn't been around for a decade, so just settle for modern Lillet. Its fine, because I use it exclusively for these martinis and hate desert wines otherwise so seriously, don't sweat it, leave that to those pompous faggots who think anyone but mini-dog-toting gold-digging bitches give a shit about white wine. Yeah, I said it!


    THE PREPARATION:

    Put a couple handfulls of ice in the shaker. Don't skimp but don't pack the motherfucker. Remember this is a drink you relax to - don't take it too seriously but give it some respect. This should be your entire attitude.

    Slice a quarter off the lemon, followed by a thin sliver. Drop the sliver in your glass, gently squeeze a few drops from the quarter over the ice.

    Then, pour the following over the ice:
    2 measures Vodka
    2 measures Aviation Gin (or other Dutch style Gin)
    1 measure Lillet

    Cap the shaker, give it a robust shake (but not too long - you don't want to melt the ice and water down your drink!)

    Pour into glass, wait for the clouding to rise a bit, and enjoy the fuck out of a tasty beverage that is refreshing by summer, warming by winter, generally perfect for evenings all year round.

    When drinking you should be able to taste all 3 of the parts of the drink, which is why quality is important. You get the instant wash of grain vodka, followed by the spice-and-juniper of the American gin, hinting at coriander and anise, which then segues into the sweet lemon aftertaste of the Lillet. God, I love this cocktail, and given a proper tasting, you will too.
