The Mansion on Turtle Creek was famous for it's Southwestern Martinis that had Jalepeno stuffed olives. Quite tasty as a change of pace.
My martini of choice right now is Hendricks and dry vermouth garnished with a cucumber.
Waitress: "What would you like?"
Me: "I'll have a Hendricks martini, up with a slice of cucumber."
Waitress: "Sorry, but we don't have cucumber."
Me: "But...I'm sorry, I thought this was a restaurant. Was I mistaken?"
Waitress: "We just don't have cucumbers at the bar."
Me: "Fine, I'll have it with a twist then."
Her: "Would you like that dirty?"
Me: "Forget it. I'll have a beer."
