Vesper Martini Cocktail
The Vesper Martini is James Bond's original martini of choice - a combination of gin & vodka, but mostly gin. His martini was later changed to be primarily vodka because the Smirnoff brand insisted - a well-paying sponsor. This is how you make the original.

The Vesper Martini was created by James Bond in the novel Casino Royale. It is made with vodka, gin, and Lillet Blanc, and it has a complex and unique flavor. In addition to its great flavor, the Vesper Martini is also very versatile, as it can be served either shaken or stirred. This makes it a great choice for any occasion.
