This is how James Bond’s “Shaken, Not stirred” Martini cocktail is made
The world’s most famous secret agent likes his Martini made in a specific way: Shaken, Not stirred. We tell you how to make it.
It’s the Vesper Lynd cocktail. The Martini cocktail the James Bond way. Through Robb Report, we discovered the origin and how the cocktail is made.
Vesper is Latin for veiled. The name is said to come from his partner Vesper Lynd. We see it for the first time in the first James Bond novel, Casino Royale, immortalized in the film made by Ian Flemming in 1953 and later in 2006 played by Daniel Craig.
Anyway, there are four ways to make this cocktail.
1. “In a deep champagne glass… three measures of gin, one measure of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake very well until iced, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.”
2. “2.25 oz London Dry gin; 0.75 oz 100 proof Vodka; 0.375 quinquina. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake vigorously for 10 to 12 seconds, strain into a large martini or cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon peel.”
3. Stirred, not shaken: “2.25 oz London Dry Gin, Lillet Blanc wine-based aperitif, 1 dash orange bitters. Add ingredients to a mixing glass and stir for 15 to 20 seconds. Strain over ice into a cocktail or martini glass and garnish with a lemon peel.”
4. “1.5 oz Navy Strength Gin; 0.75 oz vodka; 0.75 oz aperitif vermouth. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake vigorously for 10 to 12 seconds, strain into a martini or cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon peel.”
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
