  1. Here’s a G & T to you being one of the exceptions. I’m glad you can get some relief from the side effects with meds.

    Strange about the not writing trend….now that you mention it I notice it too.

    Continued good thoughts sent your way 🙂

    • Yea, it’s my blog where there’s only good stuff. It’s also my hope that folks see some new and interesting things. If it brightens someone’s day then it’s a big hit as far as I’m concerned.

  2. Gin and tonics! Yeah, baby! I’ve been branching out from my normal gin Martinis and Manhattans and have learned to make a Sidecar. Trying to use up some of the random liquor that inevitably accumulates in the cabinet.

    • For G & T’s I use Tangueray, for gin martini’s it’s Sapphire, no vermouth. I have lots of friends, though, who like vermouth added. A few years ago I decided to do some research on how much vermouth to use, if you were going to add it. I talked with a dozen or so bartenders and had a lot of martinis. We entertained a lot back then, and so I tested out various ratios on our guests, who happily consented to being guinea pigs. I wasn’t sure there would be anything like a “right” amount, but it turned there was a ratio that most people preferred – one part dry vermouth to five parts gin. Give it a try!
