Vesper Martini

A creation of James Bond author Ian Fleming, this classy, sweet and sour cocktail is on every bartender’s repertoire, ordered by those in the know, and made as fine variation on the martini.

Ingredients

Serves:

1

2 units of alcohol per serve

Equipment

  • 1 x Martini glass

  • 1 x Strainer

  • 1 x Jigger

  • 1 x Ice

  • 1 x Cocktail shaker

  • 1 x Knife

Method

  • Ice

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.

  • Pour

    Using a jigger, measure 35ml London Dry Gin, 10ml vodka and 10ml dry vermouth into the shaker.

  • Mix

    Shake the mixture vigorously until the surface of the cocktail shaker feels chilled. Use a cocktail strainer to strain into a martini glass.

  • Garnish

    With a sharp knife slice the peel from a lemon on a chopping board and twist over the rim of the glass to garnish.

  • Grab a bite

    Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
