There is NO SUCH DRINK AS A VODKA MARTINI!

but there is a vodka and vermouth drink.

An interesting
article on Martini history.

A Drink With Something In It
There is something about a Martini,
A tingle remarkably pleasant;
A yellow, a mellow Martini;
I wish I had one at present.
There is something about a Martini
Ere the dining and dancing begin,
And to tell you the truth,
It's not the vermouth -
I think that perhaps it's the gin.

-Ogden Nash (1935)

Sorry if this is slightly off topic, but I need to rant a bit.

Last night we had a work party at a place that recently changed hands. For years and years the bartender was a little old Italian man who looked like he had been mixing drinks for about 60 years. He made the best Rob Roy I'd ever had. Well, we get there and of course he's nowhere in sight. So I go up to the bar and ask the Coyote Ugly wannabe for my Rob Roy. After some hesitation, I got my scotch on the rocks that just happened to have, literally, ONE DROP of vermouth floating on one of the ice cubes. (and bitters? what are they?)

With all the hype about cocktail culture and every other Food TV show including drink segments, no one seems to really care about making a proper drink anymore... or have respect for those who can.

just my two Z's

There's a great poem by the great Dorothy Parker:
I like to have a martini
One or two at the most
After three I'm under the table
After four I'm under my host!
