Is it acceptable behavior to drink a martini (shaken not stirred) while wearing a Speedy Pro, and not a Bond watch?

Yes, but, you're an idiot
No, but, you're an idiot
Doesn't matter, you're still an idiot
Does not apply, James Bond is a pussy, and drinks cool-aid

Now just don't vote and run, stay and play. Sharing is caring. David

Most Bond geeks would argue that James Bond wore a Rolex and drank Martinis. Personally, Bond is a wuss. Clint Eastwood drank whiskey, and the outlaw Josey Wales could smoke Bond's little Nancyboy butt.

Now, me ... I'm a bourbon or scotch guy. Gimme a good single malt on the rocks, or some Woodford Reserve with some ice and water. I'll drink with you no matter what watch you are wearing. - David

....and yes you are an idiot, but every village needs one. ;-)

First, it ain't a martini unless its gin, preferably Tanqueray.

You vodka swilling barbarians come up with a name for your drink, and don't suggest "vodka martini"

You ever heard of someone switching liquors in other mixed drinks and calling it the same thing?

Vodka and OJ -- screwdriver
Tequila and OJ -- screwed up

Rusty Nail -- scotch and Drambuie
Mix Drambuie and Bourbon and you'll have Scotland and Kentucky at war

And you're only an idiot for storing your watch in a glass with alcohol present, whether it's a Speedy or a SMP

have one for me -- but call it what it is -- vodka martini my a**

Not true. Some, like I, have an open mind and understand he is a fictional character. It's only in the movies that he drinks that cocktail. In the book On Her Majesties Secret Service, whilst looking for a wedding ring, he gets drunk on beer with his taxi driver.

Now I personally will drink anything from beer, through to whiskey. But I draw the line at methylated spirits and petrol.

I also understand styles change with time. Hence our favourite fictional assasin now has an Omega.

Good to see some guys drinking Woodford on here. Elijah Craig, which comes from the same distillery about 30 minutes from me, has been my favorite for the past few years.

Any of you Woodford fans that can find it, you really should try it out.

Hardly a fair comparison, David. Bond (Sean Connery, the only REAL Bond) was pretty cool, but Clint Eastwood - as Dirty Harry, or in the cowboy flicks - well, even with the cool gadgets Bond wouldn't have much of a chance....

As for the booze, well, I quit that a lot of years ago so that there'd be some left for you guys, so I gotta defer on that one....

And as for David Moose, anybody that can put together the motor home gag ain't no idiot. However, that reminds me of a pretty funny bumper sticker one of the guys mentioned at the poker game last week....
"Somewhere in Texas, a village is missing its idiot..." Now I don't care what your politics are, that's pretty funny....:-d

David --- you are a true inspiration....
I am on my way to the liquor cabinet.

Lagavulin, now that is nice stuff. My wife and i went to the distillery to pick up a couple of bottles a few years ago while diving off the island, it was like stepping into the last century. Old buildings, the slight smell of whiskey in the air mmmmm, but i digress...

Didn't Bond wear more Seikos than anything else?

straying from watches, but this is public forum oh man it's not it's Omega. You got a beautiful single malt, like Longmorn's my fav., why the hell would you dilute it with ice or water? Matinis I don't give a damn shaken or stirred, long as it's Bombay or Tanquerey or some equally good gin I've not had. And keep the damn olives out of it! Oily tasteless marbles. Get em on the side. (Olives are good for you.) Lemon zest is what you want. And wear a Planet Ocean when you imbibe. My recipe for a good drink!

Talk to the distillers, they always recommend you drink malt with a splash of water to release the flavour. Don't drink it neat, it's a concentrate don't ya know..:-!

I have had plenty of martinis wearing just a speedo, nothing wrong with that. Oh wait a minute you said Speedy Pro...never mind I guess I'm the idiot.
