Shaken, not stirred! How to Make The James Bond Vesper Martini Cocktail

written by Anthony Mbugua 16th August 2019

Vesper Lynd was arguably James Bond’s strongest love interest. Portrayed beautifully by Eva Green in Casino Royale, her final betrayal (and death) left a mark that would seep through James Bond’s (Daniel Craig) messy slips in other films before he considered retiring. Perhaps this is why the Vesper martini has come to be considered as the ‘official’ James Bond drink.

However, there’s an exhaustive list of James Bond’s fine cocktails. To this famous fictitious MI6 agent, Vesper was ‘the one that got away‘ so probably this drink is in honour of her. You can drink this as you watch the classics. Are you excited about the next instalment? I am!

29 ml of vodka

14 ml of dry vermouth



  1. Mix the ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
