Vodka Tonic for Summer

With all due respect to WFY’s Gin & Tonic love, I have to say that the real summer drink should be a tall, cold glass of Absolute vodka with a splash of tonic and a twist of lime.

This version at Rumors, while not perfect, is perfect for me right now.

I prefer the version at Trios, there patio party time is not complete without the knock-your-socks-off straight up vodka over ice with a chaser of tonic (served in in little bottles of course).

Here, today, with the stupid hot heat, you’ll note that I am the only drunkard fool drinking outside at Rumors. But I am not the only one who prefers vodka to gin. In my company is Jenn, Max, and Jenn again.

    Vodka tonic is for douchebags too pussy to have a proper martini.

    Them’s fighting words. Or maybe drinking words. I’m not sure which.

    You forgot Doug! Gin is piss with pine trees mixed in. Only limeys would pretend to like such booze. Bletch.

    Alcoholic Smackdown! Yeah, baby! To each his own poison…

    Funnily enough, Absolut vodka completely disagrees with me, ever since an unfortunate incident in college. I’m with Stoli for mixers, or Belvedere and soda, or anything infused at Russia House. And I can’t stand tonic – bletch!

    But Mitch & Murray, do you have your “proper martini” properly, with gin, or do you prefer vodka martinis?

    Shaken not stirred. Jesh.
