I have to admit, I'm a Rum/Whiskey kind of guy.
I finally tasted some Gin on my birthday.
OMFG how do people drink that stuff, it's nasty as crap. and I didn't drink the cheap rail Gin either, it was a Dry Tanqueray Martini on the rocks.
for now, I'll stick with Rum, Whiskey, and Vodka(but not Grey Goose, grey goose sucks).
speaking of whiskey...I've tried Bourbon, and Canadian whiskey(Crown Royal = THE BOMB), but I've yet to try Scotch or Irish Whiskey. i'll get to it one of these days.
made a Manhattan that was awesome, same night i tried the Gin Martini.
Crown Royal, Amaretto, Sweet Vermouth shaken(my bar doesn't carry bar spoons, WTF) over ice and strained, Dry Vermouth swirled around the ****tail glass. garnished with a cherry. I loved it.
