    I realized today that I have never had a martini, not shaken nor stirred! I am going to have to change this. My job was one that if I received a dui, I would lose my job, so for nearly 40 years I didn't drink hard liquor, I would drink a beer now and then and never at company functions. Now that I am retired I have been exploring liquors, My buddy in Houston has been educating me on liquor, my first Scotch was Talisker 18 year, I now have more liquor in my house than all of my life. I also have Willet Rye, Jameson Irish whisky, Buffalo Trace Bourbon, and Kirkland 18 year Scotch from Sherry Cask aged. So when I visit Phil, I'll have to bring up martini's if not sooner. PS Phil also reintroduced me to cigars!

    If you like olives, try a Beefeater, extra dirty.. if not, try Bombay Saphire, clean. Personally, I'd prefer a Gimlet, extra dirty, or a Manhatten. Good luck! Lol

    Phil and I have been friends since grade school, so not sure how this will play out, but Al you know me, not much of a drinker for sure!

    There's no debate.

    Martini = Gin
    Vodka Martini = Vodka.

    My go-to drinks are, in order:
    • Whiskey/Bourbon/Scotch Neat
    • Old Fashion
    • Manhattan
    • Martini
    • Water

    For the record, none of the above drinks should have fruit in them.

    • Whiskey/Bourbon/Scotch Neat - absolutely no fruit. Not up for debate.
    • Old Fashion - I do not want to see an orange peel and/or a freaking cherry floating in mine. I'll send it back every time.
    • Manhattan - this better be stirred and not shaken. I will allow an orange twist but again, keep the cherry on the ice cream sundaes.
    • Martini - again, only stirred and no fruit. Just an olive or two.
    • Water

    Brandy old fashioned requires a cherry.
    Manhattan requires a lemon twist.
    Martini (not a dirty martini) is preferred with a lemon twist. Depending on the gin/vodka. Any more than a twist, and it's a screwdriver.

    I don't like brandy old fashions - I prefer bourbon and again, no fruit.
    I actually meant lemon twist in the Manhattan. I think I was so mad about people putting orange peels in the old fashioned that I typed out orange peel instead of lemon peel for this one. haha

    So you’ll allow an orrange twist on a Manhattan ...

    You just lost the argument!

    If you don't like brandy in your old fashions, then you don't like an old fashion.

    He’s right

    Your taste in cocktails is similar to your taste in cigars.
