Drinkin' Time At The Dino Lounge

As the warmer months are upon us, I can't wait to make some good drinks. I wonder if any of the Rat Packers ever drank this?

Hey it's Face Man from the A-Team. Good timing Keith I tried my first Gin last night - loved it.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks. Glad you liked it. I thought it was a good time to post this.

The martini is the most sublime drink in the world. And they are right, it tastes better when the glasses are pre-chilled. I'll bet that the rat pack certainly sunk a few.

Hey Cocktails. Thanks for the comments. I love a martini. It's one of my favorite drinks to have. I do think it's much better when the glass is pre-chilled. I'm sure the Rat Packers had to kick back a few of these over the years.

This is a great ad. I like it. I wish I had a martini about now.

Hey pallie Keith, dude likes our Dino was mostly a J&B man, but this post does remind me of how our Dino spoke of freezin' his booze as popcicles and enjoyin' his liquid refreshment thata ways...our Dino the coolest of cool inventors....

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I want a martini myself right about now. It's been a rough few days lately.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. I knew that Dino loved J&B, but I wasn't sure about any other drinks. I love J&B myself. I plan to drink to post more retro booze ads over time. I'm going to have to look for some J&B ones. Oh yeah. I always loved the idea about the popsicles. Cheers!

Jasmina said...

heh old ads are so funny :> expecially the tobacco and the alcohol ones :>

Keith said...

Hey Jasmina. Thanks for the comments. I really dig both the booze and cigarette ads of the past.

Couture Carrie said...

That ad is fanTAStic, K! Where DO you find these treasures?

I'm a vodka martini gal myself . . . Lots of olives...

Keith said...

Thanks Carrie. Some stuff I get sent by people. Others I find through Google. I'm glad you liked it. I like a martini either with gin or vodka.

I'm reminded of that KISS song "Cold Gin".

"...You know it's the only thing
That keeps us together."

A KISS/Dino teamup would've been interesting. I can picture him now on the Destroyer album cover... but I digress. Great post - love the ad!

My favorite's always been rum and coke with lime, easy on the ice.

I also like Irish coffee...

La Couturier said...

If only I could sip fabulous drinks at a bar. Not quite allowed to, yet. Lol

Bisous,
La C.

Keith said...

Hey Gil. Thanks for the comments. I always loved that KISS tune. Now I've got that song in my head. Wow. It would have been cool to see them and Dino together. Heck, they appeared on that Paul Lynde Halloween special. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Joe. Great drink. I'm going to have to make me up one of those this weekend.

Keith said...

Hey La C. Oh yeah. I almost forgot. lol Sorry about that.
