My guess is stringy as hell and chewy. You would need a huge stew pot and a day or so.

Put me in a blender with some vodka and a slice of pie. It will make all your dreams come true.

Some say that martinis are an acquired taste. Well, I seem to have acquired it from my very first sip in the martini bar at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis years ago. And yes, it DOES need to be gin ... a good London Dry please ... and don't spare the vermouth. Now, for the ultimate gasp ... I can't think of anything that pairs better with a good cigar ... not whiskey, not scotch, not beer.

Jet fuel, pine trees, whatever ... I've heard them all. My problem with martinis ... other than the one my liver doctor might mention ... is I wish I could drink more than two without wanting to take a nap.

I'm no expert, but I've been told that Beefeater combined with a dry vermouth measured in drops, not shot glasses, makes the best martini.
