This is a normal post Shaken v. Strired expalined
No Phd, but a Diploma in catering (specialising in bar service).

Shaking - if done correctly - means the martini should have small shards of ice floating in the gin. Stirred just cools the gin.

They do tastes different, but no barman has ever claimed that the gin contains the spirit of the ice. And barmen will talk shit, but even we know when summat's complete and utter bollocks...

And for the record. Gin + vermouth = a martini. If you're using vodka, instead of the gin, you've got yourself a vodka martini.

This is a normal post Perhaps you could help me
My bartender friend laughs at me when I ask for a splash of the olive juice in my martini. Is he just being a snob or is there something fundamentally wrong with what I'm asking for?

This is a normal post I'd

be careful lapping Olive Oil when drinking. For one, Popeye will smash you face in and, secondly, you run the risk of coating your intestines with a thin layer of oil which may prevent the alcohol being absorbed - which kind of defeats the object of drinking.

A further hazard would be oiled and lubricated turds which may well slip past your tightly clenched sphincter leading to a heavy feeling in the pants department.
