    Bloody Marys this morning for my wife and me, using High West Silver oat whiskey in place of the vodka.

    Love the gin, hate the vermouth.

    vermouth in general or M&R in particular? it's what i had at the time. i'm not a particularly big martini snob or a vermouth expert, i've only really had sweet and dries of noily and M&R.

    Recently been trying a lot of the Top Picks cocktails off of Fred Yarm's Cocktail Virgin blog. Some satisfying drinks, and a great way to use up my homemade ingredients to boot.

    In honor of some saint, tonight was a more traditional cocktail: the Irish take on a Bijou, a.k.a. a Tipperary.

    2 pts. Irish whiskey (Clontarf)
    1 pt. green Chartreuse
    1 pt. sweet vermouth (Dolin)

    I'll admit to being a bit of a vermouth snob, but not an expert.

    I prefer Dolin or Vya dry with a classic gin martini. M&R in particular, especially if you are going 2:1, is not that tasty. Just one man's opinion, though.

    Martin Miller's Westbourne is at the top of my gin list, though. It really sings with a touch of citrus, so I just go for an orange peel or lemon twist!

    Still hard to beat Beefeaters, but for a change every now and then Plymouth will do.
