My first chocolate martini – from Max’s Deli near Sacramento – was amazing. But later I had a few inferior ones (at other locations) and dropped it from my personal menu.

My favorite martini was a plain old vodka one poured to the brim, with Potocki vodka, from Duke’s in London:

But, I've also been known to swill Ralph's brand vodka.

Mmmmm......Martinis........

While I admit I am a probably a bit TOO fond of all martinis :roll: (with the exception of apple, chocolate and coffee flavored ones) , I think my favorite might be Hangar One, VOX, or Rodnik up to the brim (NO short pours!), ultra dry with Tomolives (minimum of 3)

Ahhh, I am thirsty now...

Swirl a glass with dry vermouth, add ice cold Boodles gin, garnish with a lemon twist.

it's always been curious how the name martini turned into a universal name for cocktail?

i myself am a vodka martini drinker, but even that is stretching it a bit. the only 'true' martini is one made from gin.

all these other so called colored and designer 'martinis' are just cocktails with imposter names!

Yes, LA Kevin, it does. I mentioned this on another thread on this board recently. The term Martini has nothing to do with gin or vodka. It's a brand of vermouth (Martini & Rossi). Martini isn't a universal term for cocktail. If you ask for a Martini in Europe (outside of the UK), you'll likely get either a blank stare or a glass of red or white vermouth. The term "martini" as we know it originally meant a cocktail that included vermouth.

Hmmm, one of my cocktail books indicates that "martini" comes not from the famous brand of vermouth, but from the name of the inventor of the drink, Martini de Anna de Toggia.

From Wikipedia:


William Grimes, restaurant critic for the New York Times avers (in Straight Up or On the Rocks: the Story of the American Cocktail) that the dry martini was invented by Signor Martini di Arma di Taggia, the bartender at the Knickerbocker Hotel, in New York, in 1912. The fact that numerous published references to the martini predate 1912 discounts this theory.
