Very cold, being my first normal martini was from Carl a couple of years ago, I had no idea how cold. It looks foggy because there are hundreds of tiny pieces of ice in it and it lasts for a while like that. This was after a few minutes and drinking a little of it, it didn't taste anything as I expected, much milder considering what's in it.  They could be dangerous.

Spring has sprung.  Time to switch from bourbon to martinis.  First one of 2019.

I needed to start practicing again in preparation for Hope next month.  I also tried out a different potato vodka on that one.  It didn't make the cut.  I'll probably use the rest of the bottle for vodka tonics.

smirnoff was the only one back in the early 80s when I tried it, like Jack-Black was the only whiskey.

 

When the peer pressure bullya disappeared for me it was the 101 Turkey for a long time.

It was Bacardi for me for the only clear one besides Everclear. Tequila was clear sometimes, but that's not alcohol that s*@t is a drug!

 

Wodka, Gin, most Scotch never had the palate for, never liked pickled beets either! 

We were hard-core around here in that era, I took it to the hilt for the wrong (is there a right?) reason and it just about killed me.

All in the past, just a shot of Four Roses Single Barrel infrequently.

I rarely drink, in the last year or two except for sometimes at Rodney's, there a bad influence it seems.

A couple of weeks ago when we were there I was playing with Rodney's blood pressure machine and after trying it 3 times it said my bp was VERY high. Joe the old guy with the white cowboy hat said here drink this quickly and poured me a few ounces of what he drinks, Devils Cut bourbon so I did and was told wait about 10 minutes and check your bp again. It went down a little so he repeated his prescription.  Well, my bp only went down slightly but after about 30 minutes I didn't care anymore. 

 

If he was my doctor I might have a serious problem.

 

One day at pilgrimage Carl asked me if I was ready for a martini, it was fairly early in the day and no breakfast or anything to eat, I had to take a break for a little while after drinking it. Before that, the only martini I had ever tried was a chocolate martini and an Apple while on a cruise, which is nothing like a normal one. The Apple was terrible.

I think your right, just remember 99 shakes NOT 100 or 98, there are some rules. :lol:

 

Chocolate with the apple in the background.

Your right, if you think that's bad the one behind it on the table was not good at all, it was like I would imagine antifreeze would taste like.
