Everyone knows that James Bond prefers an alcoholic drink to a soft drink. In fact, heeven goes as far as deriding tea as mud and blaming it for the collapse of the BritishEmpire. Although its the legendary Vodka Martini that hes best known for, he also ordersmany classic cocktails, including an Old-Fashioned, an Americano and a Negroni, all ofwhich appear in this book. Bond also effortlessly creates his own drink in Casino Royale:Three measures of Gordons, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it verywell until its ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it? And so theVesper was born, to the delight of bar owners across the globe.

He ordersScotch and soda 21 times in the books, but hes also keen on bourbon and a brandy andginger ale. So what better way to celebrate the release of the24th film than to enjoy one of his iconic drinks.
