The Art of the Cocktail – Casino Royale (Martin Campbell, 2006)
We long ago got tired of the argument that James Bond shouldn’t shake his martinis. Indeed – most purists tremble at the thought of hitting a fine martini with a jolt of ice cubes. However, the most relevant effect is that the drink is further weakened by friction and subsequent melting of ice cubes. Must move now; This brand of bond-splicing is age-old as well as 1960s sexism. James Bond is a blunt-ball injury instrument. She is a fan of fine champagne and beautiful women and wears only the best bepok suits. There is a weakness for even the most discriminating skilled cheeseburgers.
The most famous 007 cocktail described by James Bond (via its creator Ian Fleming) in Chapter 7 of the novel Casino Royale is:
‘A dry martini,’ he said. ‘One. A deep champagne goblet. ‘
‘Just a moment. Gordon’s three measurements, one vodka, half measure whether lilt. Shake it very well until the ice has cooled, then add a large slice of lemon peel. Got it? ‘
‘Goose, it’s definitely a drink,’ Leiter said.
Bond obtained. ‘When I’m … concentrating …,’ he explained, ‘I never drink more than one drink before dinner. But I like to be big and very strong and very cold, and very well made. I hate small portions of anything, especially when they taste bad. This drink is my own invention. I’m going to patent it when I think of a good name. ‘
And, aptly, it wasn’t until the 21st and busiest James Bond film, a proper adaptation of that Ian Fleming novel, that James Bond finally gave the story of Vespar Martini on screen. It also occurs as a top level 007. International spying is told with a simple storytelling temperament and a moderate pace that allows Daniel Craig on the first ride of 007, to live the character completely, to embrace the cold, to drink plenty of wine. , And fall in love with the impressive Vesper Lind (Eva Green).
It is also worth mentioning that Casino Royale is also Bozist Adventure of Bond. According to Thrillist’s infographic, he drank 26 units of alcohol: one glass of Mount Gay and soda, two glasses of whiskey, half a bottle of red wine, one bottle plus one glass of champagne, two Vespar Martinis and a part of a poison Vespar. He still, somehow, manages to stay on his feet (without the poison part).
I’m waiting for a James Bond vs. Marion Ravenwood drink.
