September - Vesper Martini

Vesper Martini

A legendary drink brought to prominence by a certain Bond. James Bond.  
Ian Fleming perhaps didn’t envision the effect this masterpiece of a cocktail would have on the world when the Vesper Martini made its debut in his Casino Royale novel.  As Bond famously says “once you have tasted it, you won't drink anything else" – a nod to his passion-fuelled romance with eponymous double agent Vesper Lynd. It’s most definitely not for the faint of heart, as it contains nearly double the spirit quantity of most other classic cocktails.  One might even say it carries a licence to kill…

What you’ll need:   
  • Your Rusty Barrel cocktail shaker set 
  • 50ml of your preferred gin 
  • 25ml of your preferred vodka

  • Ice 
Preferred glass:  Martini glass

Top Tip:  Chill your Martini glass before use and fine strain after shaking to remove the ice crystals from the cocktail.

  • Shake well 
  • Strain into your martini glass.

          Feeling creative?  Experiment with your garnish; try an olive, dirty olive, a cornichon or a mini pickled onion.
