My name is Martin and I drink martinis

One: Any drink in a martini glass is not a martini

Two: The meaning of ‘dry’

Three: Gin is not poison

Four: Classic English gin only please

Five: Garnishes

Six: Do not serve me a martini in a coupe

Seven: I should never have to explain to a bartender how to make a martini

Eight: I do not care about shaken versus stirred

Nine: I invented a classic cocktail

Ten: Drink what you like, not what I tell you

So much for the ‘rules’
