The Vesper Cocktail Recipe
Made famous by James Bond, the cocktail is renowned for being ordered with the phrase, "Shaken not Stirred" which came from Ian Fleming, the author of Bond. First appearing in his book "Casino Royale" which was published back in the 1950's. In fact the name Vesper came from fictional double agent Vesper Lynd.
When Bond orders the Vesper, it comes with strict instructions that must be followed by any who make it: “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?”
Add all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Twist a slice of lemon peel over the drink, rub along the rim of the glass, and drop it in.
