    Default Sandra Lee's PBJ Martini

    OMG. I just wandered through afternoon TV channels and came across the
    end of S.L's show. She was making PB&J "Martinis". Umm, yeah. Ugh.

    Raspberry vodka
    Hazelnut "li-KOOR"
    red grape juice
    and a canned peach slice in each glass.

    For kitchen decor and "tablescape" it was a pink-and-green day.

    How can people watch this stuff

    Why Gloria! It's one of the best comedy shows on tv these days!
    Sandra really is a twit, no doubt about it, certifiable.

    The whole "martini" thing has spiraled way out of control. It's only a
    matter of time before someone just craps in a cone shaped glass, pours
    whiskey over it, and calls it a Howdy-Doody martini.

    Oh... Dear... Gawd... I haven't watched her in months. Actually I haven't
    watched anything on FoodTV for months. I've been liking some of the shows
    on The Travel Channel lately.

    I have *got* to check the schedule and see when this episode next airs. I
    force Steven to watch her episodes now and then. He laughs his ass off
    at her.

    ROFLMAO... as long as the glass is chilled and it has 2 olives, why not?
    Wonder what they'd put in it if you asked for it, "dirty"?

    Sandra Lee has become to cooks what Wal Mart became to shoppers. I simply
    cannot watch her show or her positively hideous recipes.

    That said I am a purist when it come to the martini. A martini is made with
    gin and dry vermouth. Sometimes vodka replaces the gin which is acceptable.
    That's it. Anything else is NOT a martini. A martini has NO mixers, and
    even if it is just garnished with something other than an olive it is not
    called a martini. I don't even care if it tastes good. It is not a
    martini.

    If you want a perfect martini here is how to do it

    fill a tumbler to the top with whole ice, NOT crushed (the ice must be from
    filtered water)
    pour in 1 ounce of dry white vermouth being sure to slosh it over the ice
    pour out the vermouth
    pour in 4 ounces of your best dry gin which has been pre-chilled
    stir with a non-metallic spoon, do not shake - James Bond was wrong
    immediately pour into 2 large martini glasses
    add 2 green olives - pimento optional

    That is a perfect dry martini.

    Paul, I know what you mean, although I prefer a 5:1 ratio. However the
    recipe for a true "Perfect Martini" by that name contains equal amounts of
    both dry and sweet vermouth. This was a classic at one time.

    Perfect Martini

    2 oz gin
    1/2 oz dry vermouth
    1/2 oz sweet vermouth
    green olives or lemon twist for garnish

    Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes.
    Stir well.
    Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
    Garnish with the olive or lemon twist.

    I like both, but rarely have either. I now reserve a martini or two for a
    celebratory dinner. I have to admit that a good gin & tonic with a wedge
    of lime is really refreshing in the heat of the summer.

    OK, Wayne. Put on the gloves, step outside. Let's settle this now before
    it gets into a fully protracted war.

    My recipe actually is heavy on the vermouth. The truest dry martini is when
    you pour the gin into the glass and whisper "vermouth" into it. The
    alternate method is to show the bottle to the glass before serving.

    Blech. Sweet vermouth in a martini? Add some bourbon and just call it a
    manhattan. Yuck.

    Hmm... I really have to try a martini some day...just to at least say
    I have tried them.

    Same for a Manhattan. And an old fashioned.

    Paul, I think all we have to agree on is that a *martini* is made with gin
    and vermouth. I can't even agree with anyone who claims a vodka martini is
    a martinin.

    I would gladly drink your recipe, but I do prefer just a bit less vermouth.
    Dryer than that, and I become unaware that it isn't straight gin.

    Hey, I didn't say I liked it. However, it's a legitimate recipe for a very
    old drink officially called a Perfect Martini. I made one once. I drank
    it, but I didn't care much for it.

    If you haven't ever had a martini or a manhattan, make sure you're sitting
    down. <g> Old Fashions aren't quite as potent.

    Old Fashioneds are yummy, but it's been nearly 20 years since I ordered
    one without the bartender asking what it was.

    Whiskey Sours were tremendously popular in my college days. I spent a
    summer in the Caribbean where we drank Cuba Libres (rum&Coke) and
    daiquiris. A few years later I went back and the Pina Colada was all
    the rage. Today when we go out with friends it seems to be artisan beer
    and expensive wines with the occasional caipirinha or mojito. Tastes
    change.
