Vesper Martini

Vesper Martini

Created by the man himself James Bond, well actually Ian Fleming the man behind the Bond books and movies, the Vesper cocktail first saw light in the 1953 movie Casino Royale and has since become somewhat famous. The drink is shaken well with ice which not only chills it very well but dilutes it more so it can be a little easier to drink than a stirred martini.

So whether you’re feeling like 007 or you simply enjoy gin cocktails, it is worth a try either at your favourite bar or at home.
