The Vesper, with Lillet has a bit of sweetness that offsets the bitter bite of the dry gin.

Introduced to the world in 1953 in Casino Royale—the first book in what became Ian Fleming's sprawling James Bond franchise—the Vesper has had more popularity in print and in film than it's ever had inside a glass. Which is too bad, actually, considering it's actually a pretty decent drink.

The Vesper, with Lillet has a bit of sweetness that offsets the bitter bite of the dry gin. Adding vodka to the mix gives an extra flavor that can only be described as “boozy” and is unique and tasty in a gin based martini.

A splash of fruity, aromatic Lillet blanc—a French apéritif—takes the traditional place of vermouth. The Vesper Martini is shaken in a cocktail shaker over ice (traditional Martinis are stirred to avoid diluting the cocktail with ice chips) and garnished with lemon peel to echo the citrusy Lillet.

Ingredients

    3 ounces London dry gin
    1 ounce vodka
    1/2 ounce Lillet or Cocchi Aperitivo Americano
    wide strip of lemon zest, for garnish

Directions

    Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well until chilled, about 20 seconds, and strain into chilled cocktail glass. (Or if you want to go the full Bond route, use a cocktail shaker, shaking with ice for about 10 seconds -- it'll make a more bubbly, cloudy drink, but that's up to you). Squeeze a wide strip of lemon zest over the drink and use as garnish.
