James Bond wants it shaken - but not stirred!

British Secret Agent James Bond wants his Medium Dry Vodka Martini shaken - but not stirred. So how do you go for it if you are a martini drinker?

The recipe is quite simple really!

  • 3 measures of Gordon's
  • 1 of vodka
  • half a measure of Kina Lillet*
  • shake it very well until it's ice-cold
  • add a large thin slice of lemon-peel.

Got it?

Kina Lillet is a brand of Vermouth. The gin should have a medium amount of Vodka, which is why he calls it medium dry vodka martini.

Interested? But let me tell you – this is very different from your classical dry martini. However, it seems to go quite good for me - I would prefer Smirnoff to go with my medium dry vodka martini!
