I like my martinis like I like my men--dry, dirty, and full of gin.

You know, DarthCupcake, I've been thinking it was time for a new sig.

Sweet cocktails, no matter what glass they are served in, are not martinis.

I do actually have to agree with this. I mean, I could pour anything in a martini glass: orange juice, coffee, ink, blood. But that doesn't really make it a martini. And I am definitely not up for an orange juice coffee ink blood "martini". Still I do on occasion enjoy those sweet drinks that masquerade under the name of martini.

I didn't know what a dirty martini was so I googled it and this is what I came up with: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dirty_Martini_(burlesque)

It's been a hot minute since I've had one, but every time I used to go to a martini bar in town I had them make me this http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy- ... index.html

One time I had strangers ordering them, the pickle martini is a sensation!

Gin, dry as a bone, shaken, with olives.

Pickle juice is insane in a cocktail. Have you had it with whiskey yet? Especially good with spicy pickle juice.

I'd agree that froo-froo drinks aren't martinis: they're cocktails. I'd say a cosmo is a type of martini though. It's mostly vodka, with just a little bit of cran and orange liqueur instead of vermouth. When I went to bartending school we learned cosmos in the martini unit as it's the same basic recipe.

I think extra dry martinis are dumb. Just call it a glass of gin!

Winston Churchill said that the only way to make a martini was with ice cold gin and a bow in the direction of France, and Alfred Hitchcock said the closest he wanted to get to vermouth while drinking martini was to look at the bottle from across the room.

If a glass of cold gin was good enough for those guys, it's good enough for me!

Winston Churchill and Alfred Hitchcock are dumb too. Drinking gin is fine but it's not a cocktail. Fight fight fight!

It's too hot to fight; let's just drink instead!
