What Do You Say When You Order Your Martini?

Thu Apr 03, 2003 3:50 pm

I know some people that actually try that James Bonds line all the time.

I just say "Blue Sapphire Martini straight please."


What do y'all say when you ask for a martini?

"Cosmopolitain, please."

"I'll have a Coco Chanel, with raspberry Stoli."

Those are my two standards.  Big grin

Jug of Mai Tai...if you do it the way the bartender at the Royal Mirage Hotel in Dubai does you're dead before the jug is empty Big grin Big grin Big grin

I never order Martini outside the house except at the Paris Bar in Berlin, and there the bartender knows me well enough to do it right.
I know it's only VfB but I like it!

"Bartender, give me a bottle of Martini."

I seriously did this once at a club here in Austria. The only thing which I regret about buying it was the club that I bought it at. ONYX bar in Vienna! It cost me 75 f*cking Euros. And I didn't get very drunk from it either!  Pissed

I shared it together with my gf. Now after that night, I almost vomit everytime that I taste Matini.

We order mens drinks in Australia. So don't know about Martinis. I guess if they put it in a bottle instead of a dainty glass we'd appreciate it more

But I think the term we would use if it was in Australian language would be

"Get me a Martini, Bitch"

Glenn,

Ugh! How civilised is CBR these days?

Where I work down at the Quay there is a multitude of harbourside bars that charge upward of $8.00 AUD a beer and some of them $18.00 a cocktail.

I *don't* drink at the wanker bars unless a broker is paying. lol

I go to the pub at the bottom of my building (which is shunned by everyone else in the office) and knock back a couple of schooeys of New or Reschs for $3.50 a pop, which is good value for the CBD.

Besides which, my sisters hubby is the head of all the bars down at Darling Harbour - so I rock up and run a tab that is never charged. Great for having a few cocktails in the sun on the weekend.!! LOL

Glenn,

*yay*

Absolutely, your talking to the dude that has the balls to do the tours with his friends from overseas and carries *miniatures* to tide him over between bars.

lol

(Bronny might not be happy though, if I have to drive I'd have to stick her on the ski racks or in the boot. lol)

Clipper, cheers to you for having a sensible mind! Good to know that you don't write off an entire nation of people based on one leader's call. I respect that.

Besides, Grey Goose is good stuff  Big thumbs up

I order "tangueray 10 chilled n straight, drop vermouth."

We order mens drinks in Australia. Still having sexuality/confidence issues??  Insane

Just like a lawyer... your mind is always in the gutter. I'm talking about imbibing in a simple cocktail, and you're reading innuendo and euphemisms into my post...

sounds to me like someone's working too much and needs to get some  Big grin.

(all this talk about martinis is making me want one... wish it wasn't the middle of the day)

Recently at the Hotel Sofitel…

I notice a guy sitting near me with a bowl shaped, (mushroom fungus shaped) type haircut. We strike up a conversation about business travel. We both decide on a martini.

JR to Bartender: I’d like a Martini, dirty, please. And one for him.

Bartender: Coming right up, sir.

We decide on two more rounds.

Bartender: Why do you keep buying this guy martinis?

JR: Because he is a fun guy.
