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.
Pink Vesper Martini Recipe
- 3 oz. gin
- 1 oz. vodka (we used Tito’s)
- 1/2 oz. Lillet Rosé
- lemon twist (garnish)
Shake ingredients, strain into a chilled glass and garnish with lemon twist.

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
