The Martini, Part Two

For the sake of comparison, consider the Gimlet. It is a classic cocktail by all accounts with a well deserved following. While it is made of gin, it is not a Martini. Nor is the Tom Collins; despite its long and popular history.

Trendy variations abound: Appletini, Chocotini, Margaritini, Dirty Martini, etc. IMHO all of these are Kool-aid; sweet or flavored drinks with a touch of gin or vodka to appease the masses. These fruity flowery light weight bastardizations of the noble Martini will not be discussed, or tolerated, herein.

The only variations that will be discussed here will be the Vesper solely because of its history, source, and notoriety. And really, don’t we all have just a bit of 007 in us?

  2. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first
    comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum
    it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying you blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new too
    everything. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

      Thank you for reading my blog and commenting on it. I hope you enjoy it.
      As for getting started, I feel you pain. I created the blog long before I really starting posting my thought. My one piece of advice is to just start. Once you take that very first step and get started everything will be easier. After that my only advice is to write about whatever inspires you and to let yourself show in your writing.
