I haven't acquired a taste for the colorful martinis. I truly love a traditional martini, but don't drink them much anymore because I do like them so well!Undiluted booze, sometimes on the rocks, is what I generally prefer. Margaritas are the only sweet drink I like (and I hate them made from those sugary mixes).
Mrs. campy and I sipped on Sidecars before our dinner tonight.
Where and what does one eat intge Cinci airport? Gold Star Chili, Moe's, or Consumer Reports favorite Outback Steakhouse? Decisions....
It's a shame you strip the EXIF data from the photos you upload to flickr, I would have liked to have known the settings used for this and the chicken wire photo.Also, I dislike the use of the word for Martini for any drink that includes ingredients other than vodka or gin and vermouth.Martinis should not be candy flavored or colored.I have no problems with the cocktails themselves, since most are delicious and potent, just wish they wouldn't be marketed as 'martinis'.
Cocktails are fun and civilized. Now if Mad Men can only bring back women who dress to the nines. Why young women often go out of their way to look ugly is beyond me. Life is short. Meanwhile, things did not work out for J&K.
Try replacing the lemon juice with lime juice in your next Sidecar. Surprisingly good.

"XWL said... It's a shame you strip the EXIF data from the photos you upload to flickr"Unfortunately, as I understand it the settings on Flickr are rather all or nothing when it comes to including that type of information, and some cameras/phones can embed far too much personal information.
I'll concur with those above that there is no such thing as a 'Red Martini'. That a drink is served in a cocktail glass, which is sometimes imprecisely referred to as a Martini glass, does not make it a Martini.
Just opened a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel bourbon and poured myself a quick taste, neat. Looking forward to finding some appropriate cocktails to make with this, it's fascinatingly complex.
WWJBD?What would James Bond do?Probably not put red stuff into a martini.
Cocktail naming conventions are so strange. On one hand any glop in a cocktail glass can be called a martini. On the other hand - change a secondary ingredient or garnish and a drink gets an entirely different name. The Gibson and the Martini are the most famous examples, but I'll bet someone with a huge mixology library can give us the name of a sidecar made with lime juice.
Both my Grandmother's and wife's favorite cocktail.
