bottoms up
You’d have to like martinis a lot to devote an entire website to them.

Of course, if I were to devote an entire website to them, I’d take care to not litter it throughout with atrocious spelling and grammar. Image is everything, after all — straight-up or on the rocks.

The other thing that hurts the site’s credibility: It avows devotion to a perfect martini — yet considers the recipe of said “perfect martini” (even the URL for “recipe” is misspelled, Christ) to be that of… a vodka martini.

Vodka. Are you kidding me? I don’t mind an occasional vodka martini, or vodka in general. But when you’re talking about the ideal martini, in all its splendor, it’s gin all the way, baby.

Still, warts and all, A Perfect Martini is local, based out of Tampa Bay. So I’ll give them the linkage (in this post only).

curious
Ginger Altoids. Who knew? (Actually, they’ve been around since at least the beginning of this year, so someone knew.)

They’re pretty good, a nice spicy-sweet combination of flavors. But they’re not breath-fresheners, as I had assumed. The packaging is a bit deceptive on that front: They come in the same rectangular tin as Altoid mints. You’d think they’d put them in a differently-shaped container for differentiation, as they do for their sours and gums.
