I said mutha farkin testing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah so I was thinking the other day, yeah big shock huh? The topic...martini's vs tequila shots.
Alright so tequila is actually supposed to be enjoyed as a fine sipping beverage, but I think I've only done that a total of 10 times in my life. The rest of the time its been a shot slinging existance with this wonderful liquor. SO that brings me to shots of tequila vodka and what have you. Now at some point in time there was a snooty person who decided that they were too good to sip their vodka or gin from a shot glasss so what do they do? That's right boys and girls they made a foo foo glass, which is the biggest bitch in the world to serve a drink in and put their shots of gin and vodka in it. Thus creating a new drink which they called a martini. They did this so they could be sofisticated and snooty while sipping their "shots". So a martini is essentially a rich, snooty man's shot. The best part of this whole ordeal? They actually pay more for their snootiness. YES! Observe.

Shot of Ketel 1 at my work: $4.50
Ketel 1 Martini with an olive: $5.50
Ketel 1 neat with olive juice and an olive: $4.50

So these people pay a dollar more just for a name and a glass. How sad is that? Or how justified is that i should say.

of course there are some of us who drink for flavor, and a gin martini tastes quite different from our beloved tequila and i enjoy them both. how do your martinis compare with the size of a shot? i've only been to one place where my gin and vermouth was the size of a shot, so yes, i expect to pay a little more for a full glass.
I know they are bigger than a shot, but not by much. We actually have small martini's compared to most. Besides I like my gin with tonic, I just want to make sure I don't get malaria ;P I think the last time I had a gin martini it was almost 8 oz then I had to finish more than half of my wife's. I thought I was gonna drive home until that.
the places i've been have all been significantly larger than a shot except for the buffalo bills at primm nevada, their martinis are basically shots, until i got the cup i wondered how it was so damn cheap. i love my gin with vermouth.
Though I will say I like a bit of the sweet vermouth in my manhattan's Yummy yum yum. Yeah most places do have larger pours for martinis. If I was still in rant mode I would say it's so they can be a lush and not look like it ;P
so, we have things cleared up ;)
What were we talkin about again ;P
um... i really don't know
