How do you mix James Bond’s signature drink?
While most girls swoon over the agent’s chiseled good looks, panache and the brit accent, most of the guys are going “Lucky Ba****”
You may not be able to get the gadgets, the suits, the aston martin, the license to wreck expensive cars, but who said you can’t drink the exact same drink 007 favours every time?
A drink is the greatest equaliser in the world!
In the movie, “Casino Royale”, James Bond looks up from his cards and tells the bar man “Three measures of Gordon; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it is ice cold, and add a thin slice of lemon peel.”
We decided to break it down for you, so you can get a taste of the Bond lifestyle.
To make the Bond martini (which he calls “The Vesper”), you will need…
• 3 measures of Gordon’s Gin
• 1 measure of Vodka
• ½ measure of Kina Lillet ((Lillet is an apertif wine from Podensac, a village in Bordeaux. Pretty classy stuff!)
• Lemon peel for garnish
Shake all the ingredients with ice in a shaker, then pour into a chilled martini glass. Add a lemon twist.
There you have it! Bond’s signature drink that you can serve the next time you suddenly feel British!
