James Bond's drink

Last night for the first time I made myself a "Vodka martini - shaken, not stirred."

And let me tell you, James Bond knows what he's talking about. It was delicious! I think that's my new favorite drink!

For some reason, there's going to be an outage on Blogger in about an hour.


Is it November yet?

  1. That has been SoonerThought's drink of choice for ten years or so. The update to the Bond drink is the Vesper Martini, reintroduced in the "Casino Royale" remake starring Daniel Craig. It will knock you on your arse, mate!

    Here's how to make it:

    Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.

    The Lillet may be hard to find--I had to scour a couple of liquor stores to track a bottle down--but it is worth it. Cheers!
