Casino Royale

  • James Bond was a literary hero long before he was a cinematic one. In the book Casino Royale, he orders this variation on the martini at the Dukes Hotel bar in London and names it after the character Vesper. Unsurprisingly, given their doomed romance, it’s the only one he ever drinks. Attention cocktail bores: note how it’s plain old Gordon’s gin, nothing fancy.
