James Bond Martini Recipe

James Bond Martini RecipeJames Bond Martini RecipeOne of my VERY favorite movie series of all time, hands down, has to be James Bond. I don’t even think I can narrow it down to a specific favorite movie in the series. I like them all. Although, I did start out as a Pierce Brosnan fan, once Daniel Craig took over, was there really any going back? (Let’s be serious). There’s just something about a handsome guy in a suit, driving a gorgeous sports car, wielding a gun, and kicking some serious ass. Maybe I have a thing for British spies…? Who knows. But, on National Martini Day, it only seems right to highlight and celebrate one of the most famous martinis of all time. The James Bond martini recipe. If Mr. Bond approves of this classy cocktail, I do too.

This cocktail recipe is super easy to make, but, I’m gonna warn you…it isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s strong and packs a punch, just like James. 😉

But, while I anxiously await word on a new movie release (and a new Bond!), I’ll be whipping up this easy James Bond martini recipe and dealing with the fact that I’m not a British spy and don’t have a fancy sports car sitting in my garage either. You win some, you lose some.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • 3 oz. Gin
  • 1 oz. Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Lillet Blanc
  • Lemon Peel Twist

Combine all of the liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake well.

Pour the drink into a chilled martini glass.

Garnish with a lemon peel twist.

Like the famous saying goes, this cocktail is “shaken, not stirred”, like a traditional martini would be. Because the cocktail is very heavy on the alcohol, the ice in the shaker actually helps to dilute the drink a bit, which just means you can drink more, right? 😉
