    Well well well, my fellow Gin enthusiasts welcome one and all.

    I remember the days before Gin and Tonic. There were the endless nights of swilling beer by the bucket or painful days of whiskey soaked shirts.

    Then there was that fateful eve, several years ago now I cant remember the date. Me and some of my closest friends were gathered for a prestigious dinner event. We had been enjoying a few pre-dinner ales/spirits what have you when somthing caught my eye from across the room. Like a star going super nova the blue light screamed across the room at me. Where could such a clean shade of blue originate from? Surely this was from an off-world source?

    Then I saw it.....time slowed and I was pulled towards it. A bottle of such intriguing shape and colour I knew I couldnt resist. Before I knew it I had made my way across the room and was face to face with The Bombay Sapphire.

    But before I could open the bottle it was snatched away from me.
    "For Gods sake man!!!" my friend bellowed as he carefully took the bottle away. "You have no idea what you are dealing with!!!"

    "No I must have it!" I pleaded, and it was for some time untill she let me hold the bottle again.

    Over the months that followed she taught me the history of the Bombay and its many delicate ingredients. We learnt of ancient Lime Cutting techniques. Studied theory on Gin to Tonic ratios and various glass configurations. Only after these intense months of learning, was I prepared to take the first sip from the Gleaming Blue bottle that had filled my thoughts for what seemed like eternity.

    Bombay Extends Life, Bombay Opens The Mind To The Forces Of Our Universe. Drink And Ye Shall See.

    oh, so that's how it's made.
    After highschool two friends and i went up to rent a cottage in sauble beach. when we got there we decided to make our own Broken Down Golf Carts, but we didn't really know how. all we knew was that it was sweet and green and had vodka in it.

    so we gave it a shot:
    half vodka
    half white rum
    lime juice
    (quantities are not present since we only had a small tumbler to make it in)

    it was nasty mcgross. but we stuck to it throughout the night - i don't know how many we ended up having but we kept going until one of us stopped. i ended up 'winning' if that's what you want to call it.

    this is probably why i'm not a bartender.

    ^^^
    yah craig that sounds lik a real 'sweet' combination...

    I like GTs cause they glow in black light.

    ANd speaking of the perfect ratio, I believe it is 1:1 gin:tonic.

    This can be bumped if your using ice which will melt.
    Or if you're already drunk.
    Or if you are marching to a bolivian tune.

    The original name given was "plunger", but they already had one of those on the Napster registration so i put the 'the', in there!

    Now how I got the name, that is another story..........:D

    mmmmm.... sounds good!
    I've never tried a non-turpentine flavoured vodka before.

    I must try this drink.

    Don't get me wrong, I drank it....

    It's just that aquavit is dangerous to drink while smoking.
    Coordinating my ashing and drinking kept me nervous. I didn't want to explode my face off.

    Those flavoured vodkas are defintely good...a nice way to add flare to old recipes :)

    Say, does anyone enjoy good cream drinks here? About two years ago, under the advice of "The Dude" from the Big Labowski, I became a devotee of the White Russian/Caucasian...

    Such a great drink..

    But cream drinks are so easy to make and almost always taste so good!!

    For example a Creamsicle is Triple Sec with Creme de Cacao...bit of cream..mix...and presto an alcoholic milkshake!


    Jeffsus:

    After reading your guide to smuggling gin I got to thinking...is it feasible to actually cordinate this smuggling effort amongst a group of people, each person carrying on their person a different type of alcohol? Do you know which alcohols carry the best? For example, would Triple Sec or Blue Curocao still maintain their taste after having been blanketed over my balls for such a stretch of time?

    Plato:

    A little bit of "smuggling" drama can add that sense of excitement some bars lack...:)

    and note these benefits at clubs - more alcohol for less and having drinks after 2 am

    plus it just sounds like silly fun
