Beverage of the week: The Vesper Martini
Three measures of Gordon’s; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel.
That’s The Vesper Martini.
James Bond’s famous Martini drink.
In the movie Casino Royale, when Vesper asks Bond if he named the drink after her “because of the bitter aftertaste”, he replied that he named it for her, “because once you have tasted it, you won’t drink anything else.”
The man and the drink. Both yummy.
