So, obviously what I present to you now is a drink. Not just any drink, but the Vesper. Anyone who's seen the 2006 James Bond film 'Casino Royale' (if you haven't I suggest you get your ass to the nearest entertainment store and buy a copy!) knows this is the cocktail he conjures up for his beloved beauty Vesper Lynd.
When the weather's hot, there's nothing like an ice-cold cocktail and the Vesper is just the drink to quench your thirst.
First, put a martini glass in the freezer and slice a lemon peel in a twister shape. Then:
- Six parts Gordon's or Tanqueray gin
- Two parts vodka (preferably Stolichnaya Blue)
- One part of Kina Lillet (or Dry Vermouth)
Shake all the ingredients over ice in a shaker. Then pour into the chilled martini glass and add the lemon peel as garnishing. Now you have a refreshing and fancy cocktail!
Be sure not to have too many, though, one too many of these and you'll feel it in the morning!
(Don't drink and drive, y'all)
