    great choice of drink!

    i thought that you might be thinking of the mertons, i should have mentioned them. oops.


    thanks uncle,

    there is actually one resting on on the couch in the background, but i could not pull through. i also had strict orders from another member at the time not to wear one yet.

    i am just easing into the PS game as of the past few weeks.

    Well........I thought I was going to like you.............but you have bad taste in liquor so now I'm going to have to reconsider everything nice I ever said about you..........:happy:

    My favorite is:

    Ketel One (Kept in the freezer)
    Martini Glass (Also kept in the freezer)
    3 Olives with a little juice from the jar. And none of those fancy upper end 'fresh' olives from the specialty store - just the plain old jumbo olives with pimento in them straight from the jar.
    Cracked black pepper

    I can take or leave the Vermouth in a Vodka martini as I really cannot taste the difference.

    For a gin martini I go for the classic - gin, a whisper of vermouth and a cocktail onion.

    Come on G! It is a cocktail glass, not a martini glass!

    I like to get a rise out of people when I say that vodka is a spirit for people who don't like grown up drinks. No flavor, nothing to bring to the table except for what is in it.

    The martini with the onion is called a "Gibson". One of my favorites, except don't expect any cute ladies to get to close to you afterwards at the bar!

    Proper for me would require a tie with a suit at the very least. Certainly not derby wingtips and especially not in green shell.

    Adding a square without a tie (which I did) is also questionable.

    I can't imagine where french cuffs fall into this equation - as many say they should only be worn with the most formal of suit/tie/shoe combos.

    Frankly, unless I'm meeting an unknown potential client for the first time I pretty much ignore most of the 'rules' and go with what I think looks good. As my work environment is certainly NOT CBD.
