Introduction: Step by Step Guide for a Vesper Martini
We can't all spend millions in a card game against a Bond villain, but we can still drink as if we were. (Sorry for the Google photos, but I can't make it until I obtain proper martini shaker)
Step 1: Get the Ingrediants
For this you will need:
Gordon's London Dry Gin
Vodka (any will do, but the better the quality, the better the martini will be)
Lillet Blanc (the modern version of Kina Lillet)
Glass (for added Bond feel make it a martini glass or a deep champagne goblet; the triangle glass)
1 Martini Shaker
Step 2: Measure and Mix
Into the shaker measure out:
3oz of gin
1oz of vodka
1/2 oz lillet blanc
Shake well over ice and pour into glass. Be sure to strain out the ice while pouring.
Step 3: Twist of Lemon
Wash the lemon. Then hold it in one hand and peel as long a strip as you can with the other. The standard peel length seems to be about 2-3 full rotations of the lemon.
Step 4: Enjoy
Add the lemon peel to the glass and enjoy.
