There have been many different Bonds to wear the suit over the years, from Sean Connery in "Dr. No" to our current hero Daniel Craig in "No Time to Die." But one thing has remained the same...they love themselves a dry martini, shaken not stirred. Though the exact dryness of the martini itself has switched from medium-dry to dry, we're going to show you how to make the perfect Bond martini. With Daniel Craig as the latest Bond, we'll be making it how he likes it.
Here are the ingredients you'll need;
- 3 Measures of Gordon’s Gin
- 1 Measure of Vodka
- 1/2 Measure of Kina Lillet, or Dry Vermouth
- Large, Thin Slice of Lemon Peel
From the earlier days, we know that Sean Connery's Bond preferred Smirnoff vodka, but Daniel Craig's Bond never specifies what kind of vodka. Also, all the other Bonds used dry vermouth instead of Kina Lillet so that can be switched out as well.
So, first we'll need to get all the ingredients together.
Then, in a cocktail shaker, add in the gin, vodka, and Kina Lillet or dry vermouth.
Shake these ingredients well and strain into a cocktail glass, preferably a chilled one.
Add your large, thin piece of lemon peel.
Then, enjoy your perfect Bond Martini before checking out "No Time to Die."
