- anything that compliments the colour of the outfit and make-up, unless of course, one is wearing a busy print. In that case, a colourless cocktail would be more appropriate.

- anything with a parasol or piece of fruit dangling off the lip is also darling and fashionable.

- anything with chocolate, i.e. a chocolate martini because for most women, chocolate is better than s*x.

- anything on the rocks, as it can also double as a beauty routine. (Hold ice-cold glass on each eye to reduce morning puffiness.)

- anything with.......please continue.

Out the back of Bullamakanka where the shielas are few but knock back crates of legopna, not far from the outer Barcoo where the churches also are few, and men of religion scanty,
on a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
one Michael Magee had a shanty.. .

Sounds like you mean "stereotypically girlie" rather than "womanly". Since when was an umbrella in a drink sophisicated and classy? Fruit hanging off the lip? That must look very attractive :rolleyes:

Personally, I would have thought Premier Cru Chablis or a Claret is more "womanly", a gin & tonic (Bombay Sapphire and Schweppes of course with a slice of lime and plenty of ice) or maybe just a nice cup of tea.

whirly, point taken. As I wrote - was just blowing off steam - a rebuttal to "manly drinks."

I was somewhat intrigued by gender-specific drinks. Prolly because I don't drink very much, so never really thought about it. Whole thing seems a bit mystifying, actually.

In Oz women seem to love the 'C:mad:cksucking Cowboy' (http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink11406.html), probably something to do with the choclatey taste, or maybe it's just in the name...;)

Chocolate may not be 'better than sex' per se, but it is certainly great 'in addition too'!:ooh:

oh FFS.....! :ugh:


PRRRP! to 'womanly' and 'girly' drinks - to me those descriptions bring up a vision of those ghastly luminous alco-pops things or some creamy vivid gunge with so much rubbish sticking out of the oddly shaped glass that you can't physically GET to the wretched drink!

Please, can't we say 'elegant' instead?

Under the category of 'elegant' - mine's a Vodka and Tonic (as Whirls damn well knows... :hmm:) or a glass of full bodied red wine.

Recently due to present circumstances, I have now been known to partake of a crystal tumbler of single malt - tis wonderful to be curled up on the end of the sofa viewing the glowing embers of the fire refracted through the crystal and gold.

I very rarely 'do' cocktails unless it happens to be pertinent and suitable to the occasion, and, in my opinion, such drinks as Vodka and Tonic, Gin and Tonic, Whisky and Soda, Bullshots, Bloody Mary and such do NOT count as 'cocktails'! :)

There is nothing elegant about necking a pint of beer down with lads at the local, or a group of loud cackling satin clad hens monopolising a large table in the middle of the morphing light show 'cocktail' bar with a table full of sticky residue and umbrellas before going off to dance around their handbags. :rolleyes:

Or do you just really enjoy the pint for what it is on the occasions that you do find yourself in a decent pub on a sunday evening, sitting in a chair with a few good chums? :)

Stockpicker, I, too, am rather partial to a pint of real ale but, with the best will in the world and no slurs on our womanhood, it ain't particularly elegant :} especially when drunk out of my favourite leather tankard. However, I don't tend to "neck" it, I prefer to appreciate the taste.

I am not sure what a womanly drink is, it seems to depend on many things, location, who is paying for the round, etc. I do remember when my sister lived in Fleetwood going to see her and then going to a "do" with her and brother-in-law in Blackburn While getting a round in the chap next to me ordered two pints and two halfs of Tetley and asked the barman to put a cherry on a stick in the two halfs. When he saw me looking puzzled, he explaind that the two women in his party had asked for a cocktail. I was a bit surprised as I thought that it was only us Yorkshire chaps who were meant to be mean.

Then GF would pressure one to make the following on hot summer days.

Juice of one lemon

Juice of one lime

Two big handfuls of ice cubes

Tot of vodka

Spoon of castor sugar

Splash of lemonade or bitter/sparkling lemon.

Chuck ice cubes, lemon and lime juice and big spoon of castor sugar into blender and let rip for a few seconds to crush it all to firm slush. Pour into tall beer glass (Continental tall type or Nonic is good) with a slice of lime at the bottom. Add vodka and stir. Splash of lemonade or bitter/sparkling lemon to make it flow a little better and serve with a sprig of mint.

Don't worry about a straw as it has the consistency of a slushy and you'll just waste your time and give yourself a headache trying to drink it like that. Ladies, if you DO manage to drink it through a straw, my number is 082-96..........:E

Shack, I was admonished for being too "prurient" so wasn't sure if I could write the "s" word that rhymes with hex, lex, mex, rex and tex.

I think you have just solved my problem. I'll just substitute "six" for "s*x" because "s*x" usually incorporates "six" (at least to most Americans and Canadians who were taught the Imperial weights and measurement system)......and I better leave it at that.

I'd recommend dropping Imperial for metric. Won't make any physical difference of course but a morale boosting incorporating 15.
Best drink for the ladies is a double single malt whisky.

Ahhh, a sizist in the wings, with a veiled reference to six of the best? Slipping out of the old imperial into something more datal less dimensional, Jimmy Edwards, comedian, WW11 Dakota pilot, titled his book, largely about his war years, 1939 to 1945, which he bore with generally a light heart and aplomb, Six of the Best. A Dom man most likely, when consorting or courting.

Six of the Best. A Dom man most likely, when consorting or courting.

I did not know he had written a book. Must try to get hold of a copy. That apart, I find this all rather allusive, and I am not at all sure I catch the allusions. What does it mean? I take the second sentence to refer to Dom Perignon, but maybe I am wrong. The "consorting or courting" escapes me. Is there some innuendo there? Sorry to ask for explanation of what may be obvious to many.

Radar66
8th Feb 2009, 18:48
Hmm... I also read and understood that to be similar to your theory Davaar sir.

Having recently bolted from London and all the 'suave' eurotrash types that frequent the Chelsea/Fulham borders, South Kensington and Knightsbridge areas, it is my experience that they, who know little of champagne like to 'target' a victim, a 'lady' and pile her with Dom Perignon for seemingly altruistic reasons... if the 'lady' is deemed rich and glamorous enough, then they will be 'courting'. However if she is of a 'good time girl' nature, then it would be 'consorting'. :rolleyes:

Personally, I'm more of a Charles Lafitte, Moutard-Diligent, Louis Roederer or a Billecart-Salmon girl. :)

Anything but requiring an acquired taste. Back in the days when if you asked is there any wine you were lucky to get a cup of claret. True. Often served in a tea cup in the down market cafes.

Have not noticed any mention here of the perfect dry martini. Shaken not stirred.

Whirlygig
9th Feb 2009, 07:34
Shaken not stirred.
Martinis should be stirred, not shaken. If you shake them, the ice melts more quickly and you get a cold, cloudy, watery drink plus the shaking action can bruise the gin, giving it a slightly bitter taste.

James Bond had no class.

5 mls BOLS Grenadine syrup

15 mls Baileys / Irish cream liqueur



Pour the Bols Peach and then layer the Irish cream liqueur over it using a speared cherry or barspoon. Then carefully drip Bols Grenadine onto the Irish cream liqueur: it will form gooey brown-red strands that drip into the clear Bols Peach.

Red wine and Coke is a pretty manly drink. Called a Catembe and popular in Mozambique using local red wine which was as close to vinegar as to be undrinkable on it's own, hence the addition of Coke. Used to quaff it by the gallon while fishing. As for being manly, you'd have to spend a few days on a Moz fishing boat chasing game fish with a hand line to understand....:ok:
