Daniel Craig James Bond 007

In the James Bond movie and novel Casino Royale, agent 007 invents and names the new vodka cocktail “Vesper.” We’ve included the scene below in video along with the original Vesper recipe and‘s updated suggested version. We also suggest these reviews of online casinos so you can enjoy this cocktail with a great game from home.

As Kina Lillet is typically no longer available, we recommend using Lillet Blanc in place as an alternative when making the famous drink which premiered in the 1953 Ian Flemming novel.
