A discussion of contemporary issues in media ethics, with olives and a twist. Made with only the freshest ingredients, shaken, stirred and poured over ice. I should also mention that I do like the odd, occasional martini. Bombay Sapphire gin and Lillet, dry and plenty of salty olives. Welcome to this cocktail of journalism and alcohol. A fine combination!

No Martinis this week

I have come down with a nasty flu bug that requires antibiotics. Damn! No more martinis this week.
I did have one in the Brooklyn yesterday evening with Helen, it was excellent, not too cold, nice and dry and two olives. Your standard gin/vermouth model. It hit the spot, but now I can't have another until I'm feeling better.
Here's a picture of my next Martini:
