    Martini? Gin vs. Vodka

    So. Vodka Martini. Pale substitute? Like lite beer? Or am I being a pain in the ass purist.

    Gin. The true Martini? The heroin of alcohol? Is it the juniper berries? Why does Gin tend to make one an asshole, or is it just me?

    We've covered clubmans and knee dents, lets weigh in on something important.

    Cheers,
    Leo

    Tim,
    As my Sicilian wife might say; "Not for nothing, but what the fuck do you know? You just beat the shit out of your gas tank with a ball peen hammer."

    Just kidding. I prefer Gin too. But a Tom Collins? WTF?

    Cheers,
    Leo

    Tanquaray and tonic. The only way to go with gin. Vodka is useful for Bloody Marys and and other breakfast drinks.

    Gin- 3

    Vodka- 0

    Where are all the Grey Goose, velo, fixxie, phairie, poser, urbane, clubman, knee dent, '59, ton up, chequered out, again to quote the Sicilian "pieces of shit" Vodka drinkers?

    Nice to know I'm hangin' with the real deal.

    Once again, the best bike forum on the net.

    I tried to get into Martinis. Even bought a real Martini glass. I just couldn't enjoy 'em, tasted too much like rocket fuel to me. Gak.
    I do enjoy a Gin and Tonic, or a good Rum and Tonic. Vodka and Tonic not so much...in fact I can't remember why I have Vodka, maybe for Bloddy Marys as Ken suggests.

    We've been sipping Margaritas this summer, with the occasional Strawberry Dacqueri made with garden fresh strawberries, but they're almost done.

    Gin and Tonics are damned tasty, but they tend to get me in trouble quickly. They just go down to easily...

    Gin and tonic for the summer drink - like Ken said, Tanquaray. Or a Margarita.

    Vodka for the winter. Or rum.

    Vodka- I just can't find the groove, I'm cool then all the sudden I'm S-faced with no warning. So i'm going with gin but only 'cause we already drank the bourbon, scotch, rum and beer.
    cheers, bcr
