Serve with the knowledge that calling something a martini does not make it a martini. Standards as lax as these open the door to prettified girl drinks and the very real possibility of the rhino being termed a pocket elephant.

They call it a martini, Deke, and who am I to argue when it tastes as good as it does? You can't turn back the tide of Progress.

Owing to complaints by a Fanatical Purist, I wish to report that the original recipe posted here, which contained equal parts apple juice, schnapps and vodka, has been subsituted for a recipe that will hurt your head a whole lot harder.

Ever since I mistakenly gatecrashed a corporate party at that hotel on my first trip to Singapore, got hideously drunk, and made fun of the tech geeks there, I have loved that bar.

One day we will be there at the same time.
