    Re: Dirty Martinis

    I always ask for 3 olives when I'm out, otherwise the standard around here seems to be 2; they must not know or buy into that bad luck myth.

    At home, I'll frequently pop in 2 sets of 2--a combo appetizer/drink

    Man i love these forums...my wife reminded me that a little lemon zest is good. 3 olives it is! Would not want to jinx anybody...bitters is also a new concept for us in this context, we will try it.

    At Nick's Fishmarket last night ordered a dirty martini, bartender put in 2 olives and I told him about the jinx. His reply: "So you want 3 olives, right?" I really wanted like 4-5, but I took the third. He pointed out that frequently 3 olives won't fit on the pick.

    BTW, what do you pay when you're out for a martini? Here it's like $10.50.

    Hell you're nice...my customers would have had me dump it and make a new drink with three olives...

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"
