Now you sound OLD Tim!!! There is nothing wrong with an ice quad espresso, with two pumps caramel, shaken, with foam, and breve on top, or whatever your $5 drink of choice is! No seriously, I do enjoy a good crazy cup of joe, but I can't remember the last time I have purchased a coffee out.And there was no “half caff, with a shot of hazelnut…blah blah” foolishness. Coffee was coffee!
If I want a cocktail, I don’t really want a child’s candy. Martini is gin (or Vodka (007 style)) served “As cold as a mother in laws heart and, held by the throat.” (great quote). But, my go to is still a “Perfect Manhattan”.It's like all these idiotic fru fru drinks they call "Martini". Gimme a break!
