Good morning, All. ’tis the Tuesday before Christmas.  David and I had intend to publish the 3rd part of  David’s The Robot Apocalypse today, yet, overseas travel on his part and pre-holiday break work stress on my part kind of threw a monkey wrench into our plans. Oh well, part 3 will definitely be online next Tuesday and should you have missed the first two parts – here they are: Part #1 and Part #2.

As previously I will be linking with Elizabeth & Bleubeard at AlteredBooklover and with Les for her Coffee Chat, even though one or both may already be on a Christmas break. I will find out.

To stay true to the RobotApocalypse I am sharing with you today a recipe, to be precise a cocktail recipe and, of course, photos of it.

At my office’s Christmas party we always have a ‘yankee swap’ where you could end up with anything from totally awesome to absolutely useful, but the best part is the fun of it all. This year, I got lucky and ended up with a set of colored glasses, which I really liked. They could be used for any cold drink e.g. water, soda juice or, in this case here, a cocktail.

This is a very easy, but somewhat strong cocktail, a Martini or Gibson, in my case – dry. The recipe is so easy, it is hardly worth noting, but here we go.

Martini or Gibson
A fairly strong, but straight, no-nonsense old school cocktail
Recipe type: Cocktail

  • 2 parts gin of your choice – mine is Bombay Sapphire
  • 1 part vermouth – my choice is Noilly Prat
  • olives or onions

  1. place ice cubes in a tumbler
  2. fill gin over them
  3. add the vermouth
  4. place lid on tumbler and shake for 10 seconds
  5. optional – add ice cube(s) to your glass
  6. pour into your cocktail glass
  7. add olives to make a Martini or
  8. add onions to make a Gibson

Cheers! Quite literally and because it is way, way too early I will now go back to my coffee. Have a wonderful day!



If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!
