December 24th completes the third full year of exciting Martini and Gin making and overall Martini amusement. It continues to be great fun writing and I hope you all enjoy my postings as much as I enjoy writing them.
I would like to take a moment and thank my readers. Your comments and support have been very much appreciated and have helped keep me going on those occasions when I have been a bit less motivated to write. I really couldn’t have done as much without you. As always, I solicit your restaurant and Martini reviews, they are ALWAYS welcome here. Especially Martini Reviews!
Looking back over the year, I have to admit that I seem to have been less prolific than I had hoped. Especially with my goal of writing gin reviews. On the other hand I have gone through three iterations of Gin making! That has been a lot of fun. Episode four of my Gin making efforts is on it’s way very soon; coming soon to a blog near you. (I Made Gin!! , Homemade Gin, Round #2 , and Homemade Gin, Round 3 )
Going into the next year I hope to pick up the pace on Gin reviews. And I do have a couple more Restaurant Reviews already in work and a few planned. Please forward any restaurant suggestions and will do my very best to review them.
As I did last year, I would also like to take a moment to pat myself on the back …. the “Martini Quotes” page is, I believe, currently the best collection of Martini Quotes anywhere and seems to get the most ‘views’! If you find a better one, please let me know and I’ll go steal everything I don’t have.
There is also a Martini Jokes page which is constantly expanding. But additions and suggestions are always welcome!
This blog has evolved over time and will continue to evolve. But I do plan on keeping the posts at least remotely related to Martinis. As the tag line says:
“A blog for thoughts, ideas, comments, about the Perfect Martini:
How to make, how to enjoy, where to enjoy.”
If you also use twitter, you can find more Martini mayhem, along with a myriad of other “finer things in life”, at
(If you previously read this and are wondering why you’re getting notification again, I’ve had a minor problem with my host. In the process of updating my site I lost this post which originally was posted on December 23, 2017. Which is also why I have changed the format of this blog.)
