How to Make a vesper cocktail
Shawn Soole at Clive's Classic Lounge for Art of the Cocktail demonstrates how to make a James Bond's signature drink, a vesper cocktail. The vesper cocktail is a twist on a gin martini which uses Siku vodka, Plymouth gin and Lillet blanc white wine. The secret to a great martini is ice. First, chill the shaker. Add one ounce vodka over ice in the shaker. Next, add one ounce of gin. Then, add a half-ounce of Lillet. Stir the concoction for 10 to 15 seconds. Pour the vesper into a chilled martini glass. Finally, use a potato peeler to add a lemon twist as a garnish.
