James Bond is back, this time with the release of “SPECTRE” the new James Bond film and with this comes the cocktails! So The Ice Co decided to look back at some of the most well-known Bond inspired cocktails.
James Bond loves the occasional tipple and it wouldn’t be the same if there wasn’t a cocktail related scene in each of the classic 007 phenomenon’s! So here are some of the most popular, but remember Bond always has his “Shaken not stirred”!
You may think Bonds most famous drink is a Vodka Martini, but as seen in Casino Royale it is actually the Vesper Martini that Bond decides to have as he dictates to the waitress how to make it. It has a slight kick and is sure to touch the spot, although it is only recommended to have one!
1 Handful of Blue Keld Spring Water Ice Cubes
3 Measures of Gin
1 Measure of Vodka
¼ Measure of Lillet (French aperitif wine pronounced li’le)
Garnish with a Lemon Peel
Add the ice and all the other ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon peel and serve!
Scotch and Soda
Whilst it doesn’t feature heavily in the films, in the books it is Scotch and Soda that Mr Bond enjoys the most. Scotch and Soda in a glass filled with ice, is a definite James Bond classic. Using The Ice Co Super Cubes for this drink will help to keep the drink extra cold, without diluting it too much.
The Ice Co Super Cubes (extra large, slow melting ice cubes)
2 Measures of Scotch
Top up of Soda Water
Add 2 Super Cubes into a tall glass and pour in the scotch. Top up with Soda water and serve.
By far the most famous Bond cocktail! If you had to describe Bond in 3 phrases, this cocktail would undoubtedly be one of them. The one and only James Bond favourite features throughout many of the 007 films. But remember….shaken not stirred!
1 Handful of The Ice Co Party Ice
2 Measures of Vodka
4 Measures of Dry Vermouth
Garnish with an Olive
Add the ice and all the other ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive and serve!
Look out for more James Bond classic drinks in the new film SPECTRE.
