Fueling Your Mission: The Vesper Martini

Invented by Ian Fleming himself, the Vesper is a potent mix of gin, vodka, and Lillet Blanc, shaken to icy perfection. Grab your cocktail shaker and follow these steps:

  • Ingredients:
    • 3 oz. gin (Beefeater is my prefrence)
    • 1 oz. vodka (Skyy is my preference)
    • ½ oz. Lillet Blanc
    • Lemon peel, for garnish
  • Instructions:
    1. Run water over martini glass and place into freezer.
    2. Combine Liquors into cocktail shaker with a generous amount of ice & shake. (you can also stir)
    3. Remove martini glass from freezer and pour in the liquid.
    4. Garnish with a lemon twist
    5. Enjoy Mr. Bond

Bonus Round: Pair your Vesper with themed snacks like caviar on blinis, smoked salmon rolls, or roasted nuts for a touch of elegance. Don’t forget the martini olives, shaken not stirred (of course!).

So, settle in with your blanket, Bond playlist, and Vesper Martini in hand. Let the snow fall and prepare to be shaken (not stirred) by these classic 007 adventures. Just remember, with great cocktails comes great responsibility – drink responsibly!
