Drunk by the man himself, James Bond, and devised by Ian Fleming – the man behind the Bond books and movies. The Vesper gin cocktail first came to prominence with the 1953 movie Casino Royale and has since become somewhat famous. The drink is shaken well with ice which not only chills it well but dilutes it a little more so it can be a easier to drink than a stirred martini.
So, whether you’re feeling like 007 or you simply enjoy a classic gin cocktail, it’s worth a try.
