    By the time the backyard blowout had ended I had sampled tequila, beer, champagne, white wine, red wine, Bailey's and ouzo.
    Am I going to be admonished for not caring much for ouzo? Better than Sambuca, though.
    I prefer the latter. But when in Greece, I usually go with the flow and have an ouzo if one is offered.

    If I told you how I liked my chicken and fish, would you assume that I don't enjoy beef or lamb? Why would you think that drinking gin and vodka precludes drinking bourbon? Sitting in my bar right now are open bottles of Blanton's, Old Whiskey River, and Eagle Rare. Plus Jack, of course.

    How true. 30 years ago I visited my brother in the Peace Corps in Ghana. The local drink is palm wine. Really great stuff.

    If you sampled all of that and can remember it your samples were way too small . . .

    I believe Viren would have offered Pre a clear shot of Finlandia vodka had they had the occasion... none of the mango, lime or cranberry stuff. I don't think Pre would have objected.

    No, don't forget the vodka. I certainly wouldn't want to make a martini with vodka, but on its own, vodka on the rocks with a twist is a terrific drink, if that's what you feel like having. As with gin, the right brand is the key. My faves are Grey Goose and Stoli.

    As for gin, I think Sapphire is clearly the best, and with the occasional exception of Hendricks, the only gin I'll use for a martini. But for a gin & tonic, I generally use Tanqueray.

    Yes, I think you may be right. Though I think Pre would have been an anchovy olive man, after all Coos Bay is on the coast.

    But remember very dry...like tandfman I measure the vermouth with a dropper...

    But the real key here is a good gin...Sapphire, Tanqueray, Beefeater... all good gins... and forget the vodka...
