Good morning....Early , I say yes possibly. Woke up thinking about a Vodka Martini this morning while making a cup of coffee. Gave a friend of mine a Stolikniya vodka martini chilled no ice and when he stood up , it took two of us to pick him up. Nowaday, it would only take one for me too. Like a good original gin also but, prefer a good vodka, and better than that Russian stuff I used, way back then....:emotion-44::emotion-46:

Yes I tried to tell Carl that a proper martini is made with Gin but he wasn't having it:mellow:  He said he would stick with his vodka slushies:unsure:  Can't recall if he prefers potato or grain Vodka.   But he's in Texas so.........

My father-in-law, after his WWII association with all sorts of people told me that at the end of the war he concluded "Nothing good ever came out of Texas". And he was one of the nicest men on the planet. Seems to fit more often than it does not.;)

Speaking of Cocktails I have a new favorite Gin. Check out "The Botanist" when you get a chance. I've only been following the martini talk from afar. Are we talking real (gin) martinis or wannabes (vodka) martinis? I'm thinking vodka based on that Alaska stuff a few pages back. If so I'm a bit disappointed in You Guys/You All/'Yall.

The Botanist is good as is Hendricks. Tanqueray 10 is another favorite.  If you're looking for a good budget gin try New Amsterdsm.

Boodles is another good one.  I'll drink a gin martini but I have to be in the right mood but will do a vodka Marini just about any time.

For those who don't know(darn few here I'm sure) Mr. CECAA850 is an equal opportunity bartender. Martini made of vodka or gin, it's up to the drinker.

Happy Friday All!  After a week of snow - it's starting to look a lot more like home for us this time of year (vs the 40's and RAIN!!).  Trying a local coffee med roast it's pretty smooth - props to them! 

 

If any of you are looking for entertainment options for the weekend - I would recommend The Greatest Showman.  Saw it at the insistence of a family member and my wife and I were VERY pleasantly surprised.  We see why it's becoming a word of mouth classic!  TONS of talent - I dare say even if musicals aren't your thing.  It's very well done!

 

Anyway - that is all!  Enjoy the weekend working folk; retired folk - happy next day!  :D

 

OH!  And a book recommendation - Ghost Soldiers - about the Philippine Liberation in WWII, fascinating story!  I have NO problems in my life - those men were TOUGH!
