I like wine out of what I've had (which isn't much seeing as I'm under age)... And I realise that sounds bad but some of it was legal! lol. I had an Austrlian wine about six months ago and it was sooooo good!

And thank you CG

vamp: No problem. In fact, i might use that as a quote "Any girl who isnt vegan is sick." Thayt quote is so not beating around the bush!!!!! 8)

Tyler: I am like you. I can drink olive and pickle juice right out of the jar. That is why i love dirty martinis, (and, in case some of you might be wondering, they are called dirty because the splash of olive juice mixed with the vermouth and gin or vodka makes the drink look dirty/cloudy instead of clear). Garnish with 9 olives and you have an olive juice lovers paradise. Mmmmm. :wink:

Oh ya, and I like my martinis shaken, not stirred. 8)

But the real question is, are you a gin or a vodka girl?

I'm slowly regaining my ability to drink gin after the world's worst night my freshman year of college....that was a learning experience. :D
Generally, I'm a Grey Goose vodka kind of girl. And I like 'em dry. Tanqueray Ten is tolerable for gin though.

Kourtney - are you vegan now?

I'll give you credit for the "shaken, not stirred", but dirty martinis are disgusting. :D Martinis are meant to be little more than very cold, slightly watered-down gin.

I mix a mean Bombay Sapphire martini, man... :D Damn, now I want one but it's too late for one.

yes, that is the REAL question isnt it. :wink: I like both vodka and gin martinis. The vodka must DEFINITELY be Grey Goose, and I prefer Bombay Saphhire Gin (tangueray 10 is alright). I used to hate gin but I started liking it when I tasted a dirty gin martini. Gin and olive juice go very well together.

Regarding question to Kourtney: well, if kourtney is NOT vegan, then, BY HER OWN assessment, she is "sick." (remember: according to Kourney, any girl who is not vegan is sick!!). :wink: 8)

But to be fair to vamp, going from the standard american carnivorous diet to strict vegan in one shot isnt easy, so kourtney, dont be hard on yourself if you arent fully vegan yet. I KNOW you will get there soon, because, as you put, any girl who isnt vegan is sick (i LUV that as you can probably tell by now). :wink: 8)


Same goes for Michelle. I have SO MUCH respect for both you guys who are striving to go from carnivore STRAIGHT to vegan -- with no vegetarian in between time!!!! Seriously, that is amazing. I think most of the rest of us on this site (though by no means all of us) were vegetarian before we went fully vegan.

In short, i have SO MUCH respect for both you ladies for this reason. very inspirational indeed.

:D

Oooh, yeah Bombay Sapphire is good too. Those are the only two that don't make me feel like I'm eating a juniper bush.

Lord knows I did my time as a vegetarian! :oops: I've no doubt it's an eaiser conversion to go from meat to vegetarian to vegan than straight there. Muchos kudos to those who do!

haha cross post between me and Dan and Meg!!!!

DAN: straight gin is too overpowering. It needs to be slightly watered down with the olive juice, and shaken with lots of ice. same with the grey goose. that and plus I love olive juice, so I prefer more than just a splash -- and dont forget the nine olives.

i bet my martinis are better than yours Dan. :wink:

MEG: i did my "merely vegetarian" time too, so you're not alone on that front. :oops: Looks like when you me and Ash travel the world we will be enjoying some cocktails every now and then, yes?? :wink: 8)

I'll take the olives on a side plate, and a vodka martini, nice and dry. Oh, and a sexy vegan boy too. Let's not be cheap here :wink:

Actually - sidenote, my favorite bar is a total dive bar but it's "Cheers" to me....and it makes the BEST hummus. (It's owned by a greek family). Totally awesome to be able to go into a bar that has more than fried meat for late night snacks. :)

okay, but you better be careful then because I might eat your olives when you arent looking.

Dan: all this talk aboutr martinis is making me want one too - but it is 2:30 am here now and all the liquor stores are closed.

What was the original topic of this thread anyway? :shock: I think this is the worst case of thread hijacking yet!!!!!

Oh, I have gin and vermouth in the fridge, and a solid nickel shaker that I paid too much for in the freezer. I just don't want to drink something that potent at, lessee, 1:45 a.m. local time. :)

Late at night I go for 'chocolate milk' - my own concoction of soy or rice milk with chocolate liqueur....it's a good dessert before bed :)

I thought you might think that :) It works with vodka too, similar to a vegan white russian. Which I would drink if bars would carry soy! What can I say? I am nothing if not a girl......which is a good thing because I can't afford to buy my own drinks, and I don't think guys get bought for quite so often :wink:
