    Well I had some dulce de leche liquor and a watermelon/cherry martini earlier (i was using the end of some bottles)... but then we went to the store so I have a bottle of Pama and have been sucking down Pomegranite martinis. It's one of my best "recipes" :)

    I am spitting distance to Van Nuys and I used to live in Marina del Rey, which is near El Segundo. Whoooo!

    Yeah, I'm so sorry. Three HDTVs, the living room one is just over 60". But no NetFlix.

    LOL I have sipped my husby's but I just can't drink ketchup. I do like my vodka and rum... my preference is a cosmo or pom martini or peach martini. Or appletini.

    Night!! BTW I lived in Marietta for 2 year... in the section that is basically Smyrna. Just a bit off Windy Hill :)... I hope to visit it again someday!

    You know, it is okay. Really. I didn't like wine until I was like 33. Beer, I've always liked. I only recently started really liking scotch.

    Hmmmm I am nearly 33 and still loathe wine. All wine. Sangrias, champagne, can't even drink a mimosa. However... Even tho I don't like beer... I know more about it than most beer drinkers due to my husby.

    Seriously... I am like a generic cicerone!!

    I think this is what makes life great, though. I LOVE martinis, but not the girlie fruity kind. I prefer gin to vodka and I have friends who claim a martin can only be made with vodka. :wave2:

    Noooo an original martini is gin but nowadays a lot of the specialty martinis arevodka! I am not a gin fan but I *do* scoff at "martinis" with only rum in them.

    Oddly enough... I am not.a big fan of chocolate martinis. It is a RARE occasion I would order one... and my husby would probably have to finish.

    I like lemon (extra sour), pom, or sometimes cosmo. Or peachy! But not super sweet...

    I LOVE lemon martinis!

    The best martini I've had so far is at DCA in the Carthay Circle lobby bar.

    Was it gin???

    If not, I am interested... I love good (vodka) martinis! So by fruity girly you mean sweet. I don't do super sweet :)

    I like the lemon martinis at bonefish... One of the best I've found. Don't usually find good martinis at Disney on land... I feel like a freak/alcoholic when I order some basic martini not on their specialty menu. DCL.., they know some good tricks tho

    Oh, crikey! That sounds painful.


    Mizner's at the Grand Floridian had some great martinis the last time we were in FL.

    At Carthay Circle, they do them gin or vodka.

    Have you been to Disneyland and the new-ish Trader Sam's? SO much fun and a decent Tiki Bar.

    It was awful... they (and I) thought it might be strep but I was neg for that thank goodness. The only thing they could give me for it was "magic mouthwash" (it numbs a bit) and time.

    But anyways! I've been to Mizner's... they are pretty good.

    I used to be like you, then I discovered my "taste" for wine and can't get enough. I started with very sweet wines like Zinfandels and reislings. Once I liked those I was able to appreciate Merlot and pinots. Now I can drink any wine except those made with muscadine grapes. Still hate those.

    I did the same with beer, though I'm still quite selective with which beers I will drink.

    I am sad though because I'm avoiding alcohol at this time. I've gained 8 lbs since Oct and I think at least 6 are from the bottle :rolleyes2. Gotta get ready for my cruise in March!
