I am generally quite a tolerant person by nature - your personal choice of religion, politics, sexual proclivities and reading materials make not the slightest wrinkle in my world view - as long as you are happy and not hurting anyone, do precisely as you will.
However, I will - nay must - draw the line at the proper mixing of a martini.
I want to make this perfectly clear; there is no such thing as a "vodka martini". Repeat that silently to yourself for a few moments until you can feel the weight of it. Nor is there any such thing as a "chocolate martini" <shudder> nor the dreaded "apple" one, either.
A martini consists of:
1 (and only one) olive.
1) STIR, do not shake, the gin (and only the gin) in an appropriately sized ice filled container. If you shake it, the ice will shatter, and leave tiny chunks in your gin, and you will have made a "Bradford" - NOT a martini. Also, the ice must be extremely cold. Watery gin resulting from "warm" ice is a sure fire ticket to ridicule. Don't let this happen to you.
2) Gently strain the now chilled gin into the vermouth. Add the olive. Voila.
The ONLY acceptably deviation from the above is to rub the edge of the glass with the rind of a lemon, perhaps giving a final "twist" into the glass. Discard immediately. If you dare leave this forlorn piece of rind floating in the glass, a representative of the Martini Society will see to it that your children's children suffer horrible fates at the hands of barbarians and witches.
If you prefer less vermouth, this is marginally acceptable. Mr. Churchill's famous recipe was to pour a glass of chilled gin, and before drinking, wave it in the general direction of France.
If you prefer vodka, by all means please yourself, but do not call it a Martini. Ever. You are only revealing your ignorance for the amusement of the educated world. Just. Don't.
<sigh> I feel better now.
