    That's the stuff from Islay right? Does it taste like Laphroaig?

    Uncle Val's is really good, but... and I want to make this clear...

    AS THE RESIDENT COCKTAIL EXPERT...

    Bombay Sapphire is really fucking great in gimlets and martinis. It has a great balance between floral, citrus and pepper.

    Personally I don't like gin much and I hate shit like the Last Word and it's current cult, but I do like Negronis and I respect that gin exists.

    Uncle Val's is the shit in a Clover Club, too.

    I find Bombay 2 be 2 forward in the botanicals. Junipero out of San Francisco has the perfect complexity and balance without too much of the seasonings.

    Hendrick's
    I prefer a nice Hendricks with cuCUMbers and diet tonic. When I fag out I like to fully fag out.

    The Hendricks in Europe is a touch smoother.

    You're not a fucking martini expert you shit bag. If you are, good on you... but you aren't.

    Let's do the three question (generally non-googleable) czechlist:

    1. How do you store your Vermouth?
    2. What drink is a Martini descendent from?
    3. What kind of orange bitters do you like?

    I AM THE TOTAL COCKTAIL EXPERT!!! ROAR!!!

    1) I store my Dolin brand dry vermouth in the fridge and try to use it up in about 2 weeks. If this is improper, fuck off.
    2) I don't know w/o the Googles, but once I was sitting in a hotel bar in the early 90's (still in HS) on Lake Como and I order a martini and it was vermouth on the rocks? What were those waps thinking?
    3) The cheap ones from Trinidad, you hipster fag. Have a native Trinidadian gift you 2 ginormous bottles of Angostura and then popoff.

    My go-to gin is either gin or the ginormous bottle of New Amsterdam they sell at Costco.

    When I'm feeling fancy, I drink Hendrick's.

    storing vermouth is a fools errand.

    just drink a bunch more over a few days.

    1. Vermouth should be gassed with Private Preserve (argon, I believe). Otherwise, it's wine, you know. So, however long you savages would drink wine for that's been refrigerated. Refrigerating vermouth is for retards. Dolin is the shit, though! I love it.
    2. Martinez!
    3. Gaz Regan's is probably the best, but I like the Ango ones too. But, in a martini - gotta be Gaz's.

    Manhattans and Martinis are the same drink, essentially, both descendent from the Martinez, just in different directions.

    Manhattan is 2:1 Rye/Sweet Vermouth, barspoon of curaçao if you're not a savage, then ango bitters.
    Martini is 2:1 Gin/Dry Vermouth, barspoon of Maraschino if you're feeling nostalgic, but it makes it weird... then orange bitters.

    This exchange is one of the gayest things I've ever read.

    Have you read the Tug since the herpes won?


    That's what I thought.
