Pink Vesper Martini 007

Earlier this year, Lillet released a rosé version of their aperitif wine – their first new product in 50 years! I picked some up at the store by our house and made a slightly modified version of the Kina Lillet martini made famous by James Bond in Casino Royale. And of course, this martini is shaken, not stirred.

  1. Tracked down the James Bond quote:

    “In a deep champagne goblet. Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet [now called Lillet Blanc]. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large slice of lemon peel.”

    – Ian Fleming (1951)
    Casino Royale, Chapter 7
