But it looks like a tasty and fun girly drink! Of course, admittedly, I am a girl and I like girly drinks...

Young women under 25 in spiky shoes and wide leg pants will drink them while adjusting their straightened hair and tapping fake nails to get the bartender's attention.

The International Bartenders Association Official Cocktails does list "vodka martini" as a separate item. But yeah, its kind of a stupid drink. Vodka is mostly tasteless... so you're drinking dry vermouth that's watered down.

A friend of mine has been doing what he calls "S'more shots" for a while now. Marshmallow vodka and creme de cacao in a shotglass rimmed with graham cracker crumbs, topped with a toasted mini-marshmallow for garnish. Absolutely wonderful.

Mid-range vodka has little taste. Crappy vodka has a strong taste, and expensive vodka has a subtle but noticeable taste. But generally, people who want a martini that tastes like something are either drinking gin or they're drinking a candy-bar, like the linked cocktail.

Maybe, I should say... I rarely drink vodka straight up. I drink a lot of vodka, but straight-up just doesn't work for me.

There's nothing wrong with girly drinks mind you, but a martini is gin and vermouth with an olive just as coffee is black and coffee flavored.

Anything else is not the thing.
 
2012-07-07 04:36:10 PM
No gin, no vermouth, no Martini. Just because it's served in a cocktail glass doesn't make it a Martini.

I don't know about chocolate vodka, but the front page has an article with a tidbit about steeping fresh veggies into vodka for enhanced bloody marys. Im intrigued, but my kidneys can no longer accept booze, however for people who enjoy bloody marys, might be worth a shot.

I hate the bacon fad, but bacon-infused vodka is awesome for bloody marys.

By which you mean 'I'm paying a lot for this bottle of tasteless spirits so my brain forces me to detect 'subtle hints' of taste that are most likely not there at all but used to compensate for the stupid 4x price tag'.

See: Blind wine taste tests.

As for the thing at-hand, I've never had a martini. Gin wasn't my thing. But I firmly believe that vodka martinis aren't. They're just regular mixed drinks. It's like saying 'I want a jack and coke, but I want it with Captain Morgan's instead'.

IT'S NOT THE SAME DRINK ANYMORE! I'm sure the....thing...described is disgusting. I mean good (seriously, it sounds vomitous to me, just farking nasty beyond belief), and all, but it's not a martini. It's something else.
 
2012-07-07 06:31:44 PM
A martini contains 3 drops of vermouth, gin, and an olive. A cocktail onion is an acceptable substitute for the olive, although if that's your thing you are weird. Other drinks don't magically become martinis just because they're served in martini glasses.

When I go to the bar, the menu calls the drink I want (vodka, vermouth, and olive brine) "dirty martinis". So I order a dirty martini. If they want to call them "Bunch of Pedantic Farkers", I'll call it that when I order it.

I've been slowly toying with making cocktails in the last year or so. I would never make a "S'more martini." My father's extended family usually does a potluck Christmas dinner. One year, my aunt brought stuff to make chocolate martinis; the things were ghastly.

you aren't tasting vodak, you are tasting ethonal and fusal alcohols. Vodak is supposed to be a Neutral grain spirit.as in, imparts little to none of its own taste. the better quality of the vodak, the cleaner the vodak the less it shows up in the flavor of the end drink.

for sipping vodaks, I prefer "dirty" vodaks Like say.. cirrus.. a nice cloudy potato, flavor, texture. nice. .

and while I am a admitted girly drink alcoholic.. what is presented by the article is not a martini. that is gin and vermouth. a vodka martini is an acceptable alternitive and a drink in its own right.

ask for a martini. you get gin and vermouth. if you want vodka instead of gin? ask for it as such..wet is a splash of vermouth, dry is a splash, swizzle, and dump of vermouth. cocktail onions instead of olives as garnish is a Gibson. and also a perfectly acceptable variation of the theme to still be considered a martini.

these... all liqueur, sweet drinks served in a martini glass?... I guess I would call them a hard cocktail to be nice.

I'm sorry.. I'm a bit particular, I don't mean to be an ass about it really.

to me, a proper whiskey sour is two parts whiskey, it can be your "rail" its fine. don't waste the good bourbon on a cocktail, one part simple syrup, and that's made 2:1 sugar to water, boiled for about three minutes and either one part lemon juice, or the juice of one lemon.

go ahead, try it, I'll wait...... save the sour mix for a long island ice tea is all I'm saying.

AND FURTHERMORE! you don't make a cherry coke by adding grenadine to cola.. that.. is a Roy Roger, if you want to make a cherry coke, you add maraschino cherry brine. the same thing with lemon lime soda is a Shirley Temple.
friggen plebeians.
of course, i must be noted that I make my own grenadine by juicing two pomagranites and using the juice instead of water to make a simple syrup.

Cerebral Knievel: Vodak is supposed to be a Neutral grain spirit.


This simply isn't true. Vodka has a messed up and unclear history, and there's nothing to support the idea that vodka is supposed to be neutral aside from the current favor of the current crop of drinkers. Keep in mind that most of the nations that produce vodka drink it neat. There's a reason for that- it's supposed to have some of its own flavor.

kroonermanblack: I'm paying a lot for this bottle of tasteless spirits so my brain forces me to detect 'subtle hints' of taste that are most likely not there at all but used to compensate for the stupid 4x price tag


Considering the only times I buy bottles of vodka myself is to make extracts, no, that's not what I mean. There are reasons why you don't buy really good vodkas to make extracts- and that's because higher quality vodkas aren't neutral spirits. You also don't buy really cheap vodka for the same reason.

Im confused, i dont see gin on the ingredient list there, how is it a martini? Oh, cuz its served in a farking cocktail glass? fark you.

/its a neat looking drink and probably tastes alright if you have a sweet tooth
//but the name of every farking drink served in a cocktail glass shouldnt end in -tini
///the name is part of any drink, show some goddamn originality

How about no? My idea of a girly drink is a Manhattan, though, so I might be biased.

I agree. What do you call the effect that has befallen the once glamorous Martini? Culturization?

That doesn't make it one.

And yes, I am being pedantic. I went out of my way to point that out in my post, that it was simple pedantics at work, but thank you for being an asshole about it and starting a shiatflinging contest.

A martini with vodka, crushed graham crackers, chocolate chips, and marshmallows?

My father would not have been amused. To him, a martini was gin and vermouth. If the drink was made with something else, then it was something else, and if the waitress brought a him a vodka martini, it was quickly sent back.
