    I'll admit it... I'm a martini junkie. But I'm in a rut. I've played around with the standard crap... Bombay, Gordon's, Beefeater, Tanq, and the Vermouths they stock by the wine shelf in the grocery store for years now. I stuck on Sapphire for awhile, now I'm ready to move on... anyone know of any "must try," lesser-known Gin I can try?
     
  2. Martin Miller's Westbourne Strength Gin.

    Plymouth for something different.

    Tanq Ten for something excellent but a little more mundane.
     
  8. No way! This has Nothing to do with a life deprived of love and companionship... It has nothing to do what so ever with JoAnna... or the lack thereof....of Dom....

    I am dancing on tables tonight... for Jo's parking space... my little kittens who were so totally unexpected.... and for the fact that I can still spell and the new house of course....

    No, Dom has any part of this conversation.... as long as I can still spell the word conversation... lol

    In the meanwhile, I would like to add that the WWE wrestlers are all dancing on my coffee table naked tonight.......... :001_tt2:

    Um, yeah OK... going to bed now.

    I have packages to ship tomorrow..

    This is what happens when you have too much gin.
     
  15. I always go back to Tanq or Beefeater. Gin has such a bold and distinctive flavor that I just find the brand with my particular flavor balance and stick with it. It's a Coke or Pepsi thing with me.
     
  16. Got sick on gin once - felt like I was throwing up a Christmas tree. Haven't had it since. :thumbdown

    Thanks for the suggestions! I forgot about Hendricks... one I haven't tried. May pick that one up when I finish off this bottle of Tanq. :biggrin:
     
  18. I'll have a Gibson please. :biggrin:

    Who is picking up this round?
     
  19. Perhaps Venture to the Darkside of Martinis ... VODKA ... A good Russian Vodka makes an excellent Martini ... Try Putinka if possible ... or the standard vodkas; Moskovskaya Osobaya, Stolichnaya and/or Imperia ...
     
  20. Svedka's my vote on vodka. Rated comparable to Grey Goose, but at half the price.
