“GIN SWINGS”: Nick Passmore, writing in Forbes.com, explains his passion for gin, and its history:
These days, however, it seems that European nobility and movie stars have become just as swept up in the vodka craze as anyone. But I, for one, want nothing to do with it. I approve of vodka for Bloody Marys or when munching on caviar, but nothing will take the place of gin for me. Whether on a hot day sipping cool gin and tonics, or out on the town nursing a martini, gin swings.
A man after my own heart.
