“A dry martini,” [Bond] said. “One. In a deep champagne goblet.”
“Just a moment. 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. Got it?”
“Certainly, monsieur.” The barman seemed pleased with the idea.
“Gosh, that’s certainly a drink,” said Leiter.
INGREDIENTS 3 parts Gin 1 part Vodka 1/2 part Lillet
INSTRUCTIONS Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Just as Bond would have wanted 😉
A great example of this can be had at Eleven
Read a nice article about the Vesper here. Â I especially liked the line…
“Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass (or champagne coupe, if you have one). Garnish with a large, thin slice of lemon peel. Bet large. Tip the chef de partie. Flirt with Moneypenny. Get out before they use the laser.”
