Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

One More For The Road

I was in a bar the other day ...
a non cyclist friend was asking what do cyclists prefer to drink ...

... now before you all start jumping on your favorite brew wagon ...

the subject was coctails, and the non-cyclist knew what a peloton was ...
... that's about all they knew of cycling. So they suggested I should have a pelotini ...

Ok ... only ever since, I've been wondering just what is or should be in a pelotini?
I was thinking of asking my favorite bar tender, but then I thought of asking the - no doubt many - experts here.

^ That's a mojito.
Consume only at the risk of one's masculinity.

Consume any -tini (aka crantini, cosmopolitan, choco-tini, etc.) that isn't primarily gin (or if you're a brazen $i$$y, vodka) at the risk of one's masculinity.
These fruity Zima drinks served in martini glasses that all the people now drink while having overloud cellphone conversations in bars are an affront to decency.

I've had that. It wasn't horrible, but it's nothing to write home about.

And for $12 a pop, I want a drink that gets me drunk.

probably what I had in mind.
Winston Churchill's method was to pour the gin while looking at a bottle of vermouth across the room.
