Rocks restrict the flow of alcohol. They also displace liquid, so you get less drink. Ice in the shaker + chilled glass.

Come on. I figured you of all people here would know a martini is always supposed to be stirred, not shaken. Once again people are just following what James Bond did and not what should be done.

But, yes, having a martini on the rocks is ghetto.

I am such a man I can drink an appletini in front of a bunch of guys. I could drink a pink drink too and not have a problem. It's good to be a man!

There is a reason it's called a martini instead of straight gin. A proper martini contains gin, vermouth, and an olive. Nothing else, nothing less.

A shaken Martini will be colder, and have more water content. It will also not be as clear as a stirred one.

To each their own, I like my vodka ice cold, so I shake my vodka martinis, gin ones are stirred.

I shake all my martinis at home, but I get stirred when i'm out. I'm too lazy to stir them myself since they get cold so fast by shaking. I might have to mix one now.

Regular martini is ok with dinner or late at night, but if it's happy hour then bring on the beer or Jack & Coke. I think it's mainly the glass a martini comes in, not the drink.

first off, how is any drink made from straight spirits considered gay?
