About the Vesper Dry Martini Cocktail

Christian Jimenez

Christian Jimenez, an expert in spirits, sommelier and Brand Ambassador of Diageo Reserve in southern Spain,

Today I will talk about the famous James Bond cocktail. It is said that this variation of the Dry Martini has been created by the bartender Gilberto Preti from Duke's Hotel in London, dedicated to the writer Ian Fleming. He liked it so much that he included in his first James Bond novel, 'Casino Royale', published in 1951.

In the seventh chapter of the novel, Bond tells a casino waiter exactly how to prepare and serve the drink: "In a glass of champagne with depth. Three measures of English gin, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet (which now called Lillet Blanc). Stir well until almost freezing, and then add a large piece of lemon peel."
When tested, 007 agent congratulates the waiter, but says that it would be better with a grain-based vodka. He also shares his martini with Felix Leiter, CIA agent saying: "This drink is my own invention. I'm going to patent it when I can think of a good name."

In chapter eight, Bond meets the beautiful agent Vesper Lynd. She explains why hes parents named her Vesper and Bond asks if he can use that beautiful name to his favorite drink. Like many of Bond lovers, Vesper would be a double agent and the book closes with the words, "the bitch is dead," referring to the beautiful Vesper.

Preparation: we will prepare this cocktail in a mixing glass. Serve 90 ml of Tanqueray gin, 30 ml of Ketel One vodka and 15 ml of Lillet Blanc. The Lillet Blanc is a French aperitif made with the blend of white and red grapes of Bordeaux, along with sweet oranges from Spain and bitter oranges from the Caribbean.

As the main ingredient, we use one of the classic gin on the market as Tanqueray London Dry Gin, with four distillations and which used in its preparation juniper, coriander, angelica and licorice.
