I celebrated my 21st a couple of months back, and one of the gifts I picked up was a set of martini glasses. While past icons of male heterosexuality like Frank Sinatra and James Bond have patented martinis as part of their style, a discussion I had the other day asked whether or not a martini is still a "manly" drink. And, indeed, what other drinks qualified.
Can the tough, rugged, insecure young man of today enjoy a glass of wine or a martini without being accused of metrosexuality? Or are we expected to follow in David Boon's footsteps and stick to tinnies washed down by the occasional bourbon and coke?
