Do you infuse whiskey or bourbon?

I'd try some apple cinnamon with Makers Mark. I've done a great cocktail with Maker and Berentzens so I know apple goes well with it.

Martini is a martini is a martini

If you're going to be that head strong about a martini you MUST add orange bitters... and 1/3 to 1/2 of it should be vermouth. look at any early recipe. If you're going to be a purist be a purist. If not let evolution take it's course.

Beautiful "Cocktails".....Carmel-by-the Sea.......(w/PHOTO)

Switch to fresh lemon juice, fresh lime juice and simple syrup and I'll bet it'll be even better.
You'll have to play with the ratio.... a little egg white mixed with the juice will help create a better foam.

Solo Dining in/around SoHo, Tribeca?

I personally like to eat by myself on the lounge side at Dylan Prime on Laight street. They serve their full menu plus they have some great food on the bar menu as well... then there's Dani on Hudson and Walkers on N. Moore

Your favorite vodka - black, red, gold ... soy... Mexican (with worm) ... what?

There's a fairly young Vodka called Heavy Water that has a very smooth clean taste. Apperently it's been doing well in "competitions". But different vodkas definitely have different tastes.

On a side note you can always buy the cheap stuff and make your own smooth product.

Pizza in Park Slope??

The best slice I've gotten is at "Pizza by the Park" on 3rd and 5th. Granted it was late and I had had a few beers... but it was GOOD!
