A Vesper Martini is, essentially, a drink made up by James Bond. Upon sharing a drink with Vesper Lynd in ‘Casino Royale,’ Bond says ‘I think I’ll name that a Vesper Martini…because once you’ve had a sip, it’s all you want to drink’. The Vesper Martini is dry and bitter, and not for the faint hearted. If you want to make your own Vesper Martini at home, here’s what you need:
10ml Dry Vermouth
30ml Dry Gin
To make a Vesper Martini…
First, fill a cocktail shaker with some ice- lightly crush this if you want to, but it’s all about personal preference here! Then add the gin, vodka, and vermouth to the shaker and shake it all together vigorously until the drink is nice and cold. Strain the drink into a cocktail glass and then grate some lemon peel over the surface of the drink as a classic garnish. Enjoy straight away!
