Status update...

You know just occasionally, after a vile day at work, there really is nothing better than the ritual of shoving a glass in the freezer, while hauling out the ice, some decent gin and some vermouth. Then shoving them in a shaker, swirling them around gently before spearing a few olives. Getting the glass out of the freezer and swirling again before pouring the contents in the glass. Then setting the olives in to drown... honestly they are the best part. Then neatly folding a cocktail napkin and plopping down with a very dry martini.

Nothing better...
Well maybe sex...
But it comes close... damn close

After the week I've had, I just about started drooling over your description of making a martini. Guess who is picking up some more gin after work today? Me!

I feel this way about a perfect vodka tonic with lime juice...

Maybe adding a flavored vodka to it...now that would be perfect, lol! I'm drooling.
