Classic Vesper Martini

If want an evening cocktail then this is the one.

Vesper: Meaning the Evening or the Evening Star in Greek and Latin translations.

What a better after dinner cocktail than the Vesper Martini under an Evening Star.

  • Fill shaker with ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/4 oz Lillet Blanc
  • Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass
  • Garnish with a Lemon Peel

Or as James Bond said in the 1953 Casino Royal:

  • “Three measures of Gordons
  • One measure Vodka and
  • Half measure Kina Lillet
  • Shaken well until ice-cold then add a Large slice of lemon peel”. “Got it?”

“Certainly Monsieur”
