The "VESPER"

posted by Michael Hunt @ 02:43PM, 6/16/06

This recipe is from Ian Fleming's "Casino Royale". In the novel, the "Vesper" vodka dry martini was James Bond's own invention and the drink has been popular as such ever since the book was first published in 1953.
A true classic!

Great cocktail. I'm a beer man myself but when it come's to mixed drinks (cocktails) a martini is the only way I go. Usually I'm all about the dirty martini. For years I shunned the Vesper soley on heard that James Bond used nothing but vodka in his mix. And with any true martini fan you'll know that vodka is forbidden. However, out of curiosity I decided to look it up and see what's in it. Low and behold a very fair share of Gin! Since then I have fallen in love with this drink and it's a nice change to the taste of dirty martini.
The real Bond martini

This is just about my favorite martini. I prefer using a premium vodka with it like Grey Goose or Belveders. But the twist is what does it for me.
Cracked ice or just ice?

In this recipe, it says shake well until ice cold. Do I use cracked ice or just ice? You'll see the beautiful Eva Green (Vesper Lund) take a sip of this drink in the movie "Casino Royale" where she's at the bar while Bond battles it out with Dr. Evil.... oops, I mean Le Chiffre at the poker table :)
eh?

Wasn't Dr. Evil modeled after Ernst Stavro Blofeld, not Le Chiffre?
