Vesper Martini Recipe

By | Published , Last Updated: November 22, 2013 | Cocktails | One Comment

Conjured straight from Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale, this infamous martini was James Bond’s cocktail of choice. It was named after Vesper Lynd, Bond’s doomed double-agent girlfriend. The potent cocktail appropriately calls for Russian Vodka and is served with an orange twist to complement the Lillet, a delicious replacement for vermouth. This drink is served in Bond’s preferred glass, a champagne coupe, and of course, it is shaken, not stirred.

Ingredients:

  • Gin – 2 ounces
  • Russian Vodka – 3/4 ounce
  • Lillet Blanc -  1/3 ounce
  • Large Orange Twist

Method:

  1. Shake the liquid ingredients vigorously with ice.
  2. Strain into a champagne coupe of chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Twist the orange peel over the drink and drop it in.
  4. Serve.
Please wait...

    I wrote about the Vesper Martini as one of the 6 best literary cocktails. It’s one of the only ones that can be easily made and actually tastes good. http://bookdirtblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/literatures-greatest-cocktails-6.html
