Just browsed thru that Beer Thread.

Although I respect Beer Drinkers I think cocktails are much more enjoyable.

There's nothing like a Manhattan Straight Up.

although my drink of choice is bourbon, a side car or a bloody mary will always put a smile on my face. Posted Image

I love a good Mai Tai, but I am always to embarrassed to order one and usually order my standard MGD.

There are a lot of good ones, but for me the number one (with no real close second) is a well made

Dry Martini—made with gin and stirred not shaken. Posted Image

To be a bit picky, Bloody Marys, Mai Tais, and Long Island Ice Teas are mixed drinks. Cocktails contain only booze (small amounts of things like bitters are permitted).

Saphire & Tonic is my drink of choice.

But when I'm in the mood for something fancy, nothing beats a Golden Cadillac. (Galiano, Creme De Cacao, Cream, Ice. Blend!)

Stoli's martini, with a little dirt and 2 olives.

If I'm in a fufu drink mood, then a green russian isn't too bad (vodka, midori's and milk).

Captain Morgans' and 7 is an interesting combination as well.

And of course, Crown and Ginger.

Are you mixing all that together. Does it have a name, like maybe Death in a Glass.

Grey Goose or Chopin Vodka martini, extra dry (swirl vermouth in glass, then pour out excess), shaken until ice cold, with extra olives (the big kind).

Any kind of Single Malt Scotch, lately I've been taking to the Islay varieties - Lagavulin, Laphroaig, etc. Lots of peat smoke - not for the Scotch rookie, but great for something really different. Then there's always The MacCallan.

Can't let this go without mentioning the exquisite Port I had a couple weeks ago in a great luxury bar in downtown Atlanta. It was a Grahame 1985 and even at 24.50 a glass it was worth every penny! Had it at a fine resort in Lake Placid a few years back, saw it on the list and had to have it again.

Hehe, Actually you not far off. It started its life as a Red Death. But I can't stand the taste of Slow Gin. So I eliminated it as well as the OJ and added a splash of lime juice. I call it a DUI but that is really just a joke. Deffinantly not a one for the road kinda thing.

Well for me it's been hard to beat the sheer stopping power of a Long Island.

For cocktails, either a Rob Roy or Tanguery Martini..either dry and straight up. For sipping, there's nothing quite like a good single malt Scotch.

Shaking a martini will bruise the vermouth. But I'm sure 007 doesn't care about a bruise....

My favorite is a quality Anejo, straight up. Got a bottle of Cuervo Family Reserve that is mighty tasy.

I have a hard time believing this. What about when the vermouth is in transit, or poured into the mixing (stirring) glass?

The main reason to stir and not shake a martini (or any other almost-clear cocktail) is to prevent the drink from becoming cloudy. The martini is supposed to look clear, although a few minutes after shaking, it will clear up anyway.

The other issue is how much water ends up in the finished drink and how cold it is. Shaking will make the drink colder and add more water from the melted ice cubes.

Got it from my mixology instructor. I never really probed what the definition of "bruising" was for Vermouth, but according to Google (does it ever lie ?), you can bruise the Gin, Vermouth and the cubes !!!! Maybe they should call a shaken martini the "Mike Tyson" Posted Image

Perhaps bruising is just the cloudiness.....
