I'm having knee surgery tomorrow and will be laid up for a few days. Since I'll be on my keister for the whole weekend I think I'll get the fire pit going on the deck on Saturday night and have my neighbor mix me up a dry martini. Probably Beafeater. Would this be a good pairing for Nightcap, MM965 or something else?

In your shoes I'd need as much alcohol and tobacco as I could get, whatever the combo.
Best of luck on the knee surgery.

965 seems like a fine pairing. Smooth enough to go along, but strong enough to stand up to it.

Churchill had a martini recipe that went something like, pour gin to the top of the glass then

show it the Vermouth. May you heal fast and not suffer much discomfort.

Good luck with the knee. I'd say 4 matinis with just about anything will get you through the evening. Latakia and juniper sound tasty to me.

Depending on the type of knee surgery your having you might be wanting something more powerful than alcohol. I've had 2 scopes and finally a total replacement on my left knee. The first scope wasn't too bad. The second? Not so much, I had to take pain killers just to stay sane from the pain. Best of luck on whatever your getting done and enjoy the down time!

I've always been a Bombay Sapphire guy for my martinis...at home, its Bombay Saph and Tribuno dry vermouth, dirty up, two olives and an onion in the middle or three olives if I'm out of pearl onions. People have given me a lot of shit for being a martini drinker, but then the specifics, forget it...til they taste it. My method, when I crack open the olives and onions, I dump half the juice, top it off with the Bombay. When I make my martini, I just put a little vermouth in the glass, swirl it around so the glass is coated. Next the Bombay, with just a little room for a splash of the olive 'juice' and the skewer.
That said, experience tells me the 965 and martini combo was nice. YMMV, of course.
