Martini Monday: Gin & Sin

Gin & Sin 005

So, you aren’t going to see a lot of gin martini’s around these parts. I just don’t like it. It tastes like pine needles and I don’t get excited about the thought of drinking a Christmas tree. But the husband loves his Tanqueray so he might mix up a few gin martini’s to showcase. In this case, I took a sip and it wasn’t bad – there was enough mixers in it that I couldn’t pick up the gin. It mostly just tasted really tart which I don’t really mind.

  1. This looks like those dixie cups of vanilla and orange ice cream I had as a kid! YUM

  2. Tanqueray with tonic was a very popular drink back in my clubbing days but it has a very pronounced flavor. You might like a milder gin with less of a juniper flavor like Gordon’s, which is pretty mild.
