I’m a fan of the Churchill martini.

I thought it was called a Montgomery 16:1 gin to vermouth which was what the allied troups claimed Montgomery had to have before he would order an attack.

In my early days I drank martinis, which, according to articles then had the highest ethanol level, the least garbage (just an olive) and a bit of acidity from the vermouth which combined to make the most potent drink.  I also read that carbonation made a drink hit faster by causing the stomach to empty quicker, i.e., scotch and soda would hit faster than scotch and water.  So, being a scientist, I made up a martini using the 4:1 ratio of gin to vermouth, measured the volume, added ice and stirred.  Then remeasured to see how much water had entered the mix.  I then mixed a quart of martini using the proper ratios of gin, vermouth and distilled water. I put it in a seltzer bottle, used the CO2 cartridge to carbonate it then put it in the freezer.  Since I couldn’t be the tester and the subject we invited two chemists and their wives to dinner, explaining the project.  One was a large guy who had been a weight lifter in college, and the other was a lush that could drink anyone under the table.  They did very well until after dinner when one went into the living room and fell asleep on the couch and the other fell asleep at his diningroom chair. 

As the lush said when I saw him at work the following Monday, “My suggestion is that you burn the recipe for those damned Oral Hand Grenades.”

Gin tastes like Deep Woods Off.  shut eye

I stay away from the stuff. Gimme tequila or whiskey, please. Vodka if I have to drink mixed. At least vodka has no flavor.

Isn’t gin made from juniper berries? I only had it once, straight, as I remember, it had a sort of citrusy taste and not unpleasant. I’ll stick with dark rum though. Planter’ s punch on a hot day.

Yes, and I am allergic to juniper pollen. I also do not like sweet alcoholic drinks. Rum is fine in smoothies, but I cannot drink it straight.

I suggest the OP run with the martini suggestions if he (s)he hasn’t finished the bottle of gin.

more like being steeped in and filtered through juniper berries along with a handful of other spices, depending on how good the gin is.

Beer is my drink of choice. I rarely drink hard liquor, but when I do I drink Kentucky straight bourbon, preferably Woodford Reserve or Maker’s Mark. I will occasionally have a glass of wine with Mrs. FreeInKy, but I’m not crazy about it.

Speaking of beer, I have mentioned some time ago that my favourite Canadian beer was local Steam Whistle from Toronto. To my surprise, I just discovered that their “brewer” (no idea if this is the correct translation—I can’t find the English word for the person who prepares the recipe for beer anywhere) is Czech. Must be genetics why I like the beer. grin

I’m not crazy about beer.  I prefer wine over beer any day, but if Gin is all there is then I need some juice.

My preference as well. (Although my hard liquor tastes run to single malt Scotches. smile)

Although I can (more frequently) enjoy a glass of red wine.

Take care,

Derek
