Where the do a dry martini that’s so DRY a glass of water is required on the side. 

Meanwhile the Omega is watching the time, because I’m not ;-). 

Cheers all. Nomadgin

works better(keeping the vermouth bottle in a safe distance, what s yr fav recipe?

I like them uber dry, so just a smattering of vermouth:

 By: nomadgiles : November 24th, 2018-11:18
In a chilled martini glass, add vermouth. Swirl the vermouth around to coat the inside of the glass and discard the vermouth. In a cocktail shaker packed with ice, add gin, shake vigorously and pour into glass. Add olives on a stick (some like a twist of ... 

Okay i got one part

the choices I should try ...  

Tanqueray as you’ve tried, plus

 By: nomadgiles : December 30th, 2018-13:30
Hendricks is very fine - and do I spot a bottle of Corum? - also very nice. Avoid beefeater unless in a strong mixer - it’s the Bells of the gin world. Slainte!

Ps - there’s a few favourites rarely seen in bars:

 By: nomadgiles : December 30th, 2018-13:44
1) NB Navy - strong & salty - makes a very interesting martini with twist of orange peel. 2) Opihr Indian spiced - great with a dry tonic & grapefruit peel / slice, or fresh fennel leaf frond. 3) Hibernation 45% - distilled in Wales & matured in white... 

these are the brands they carry , i think it s a great choice comparing to other places in my

 By: Passionata_george : December 30th, 2018-15:18
country though gin(and martini) not as popular as in the UK or in the USA , the bartender suggested Tanqueray and Jinzu ...  

Have an enjoyable evening and best for 2019

A dry Martini (i.e. no Vermouth) is a wondrous thing.

If you ever come to Singapore and like bar then you must visit this place!

Wolfgang for the pack at MBS. ...  

That looks a very cool bar!

 By: nomadgiles : November 25th, 2018-06:07
A Singapore Sling when I do visit 😉

Singapore Sling is over rated. You have to get it at raffles Long Bar if it is still operating.
