    Watching March of the Penguins turned into using Rob's penguin martini shaker which turned into me having to type ultra-slow to be coherant. Cheers to a good Sat. night :thumb:

    Shakers are not supposed to have a handle, but oh well.

    looks like a good time. I had a friend in college that had a martini shaker shaped like a guy dressed like James Bond. Clever right?

    And exactly what functional difference would the presence or absence of a handle make?

    Without the handle you learn how to shake a drink perfectly.

    This might be worth a sit-down conversation sometime, I would take some convincing.

    Wull, in all honesty, it's about the gin and whatever whispers of other substances you add.

    The shake/stir and other controversies are exercises in putting on airs.

    With the shaker, you need to have two hands on the thing at all times if the customer asks for it to be shaken, if the customer doesn't ask for it to be shaken, the martini is stirred. The only type of drink that is kind of like a martini that it is standard practice to shake it every time is a cosmopolitan. It's also called a bullsh!t martini. The bartending schools teach you to use a shaker without a handle, and shows you the proper technique to using a handleless shaker. A person is more likely to make a mess and waste booze by using a handled shaker due single handed dependency.

    A general martini has variables to it but if not asked it comes with:

    3_1/2 oz of Gin/vodka
    1/2oz of dry vermouth, and is stirred/shaken

    A dry martini can be
    3_1/2 oz of Gin/vodka
    1/4 oz of dry vermouth stirred/shaken

    An extra dy martini can is
    3_1/2 oz of Gin/vodka
    1/8 oz of dry vermouth. Stirred/shaken.

    All the vermouth you ever need to add to a martini can be attained by pointing the shaker in the general direction of an unopened vermouth bottle.

    Yeah, the movie was interesting, but lots of snowy scenes to remind us of winter. And it was a lot of walking and sitting on an egg in the ice. It was nice to have some Grey Goose to keep us warm.

    its not so much about the shaker for me... its the glass its served in. The glass needs to be properly contured for the hand.. this way one can get optimum drinking pleasure. I find most Martini glasses to be to small.

    No ch!t!

    And what's up with bartenders who don't fill the martini glass to the rim? MizN8 and I had dinner at Copeland's Frin nite and the bartender cheezed the pour... I had to school him on the proper way to serve a martini, which is filled to the rim...

    Correct.

    I still shake it with two hands. The handle just facilitates easy pouring of the Grey Goosey goodness into waiting chilled glasses.
