And the olives filled with blue cheese preferably
I only have Martinis when at the casino bar, and 4 of them I can't get off the chair.

Gin or Vodka? I like both. I agree with Avid 24.

Vodka for me.

I stopped drinking gin many years ago - something about having my eardrum reconstructed/replaced if I remember correctly.

Spoiler alert :
Cardiomyopathy and drinking. Two per day max and one per day if over 65.

What are they going to deprive me of next?

Advise from my Grandfather. "Martini's are like tits, one is not enough and three are unnatural. Two are just right."

If am wanting to get that buzzed feeling I like just sipping bourbon on ice
