Drink of the Week: The Vesper

I had totally forgotten to think of a certain drink, or drink theme for this week but then I remembered the scene in Casino Royale where James Bond, at the card table gives out a drink recipe. It sounded cool and classy and so I thought it was perfect. I thought it would take some "leg work" but it was actually (embarrassingly) easy to find the recipe and information about it (I got mine here.)
It is called The Vesper,which I find to be an exotic and elegant name for a very sophisticated drink:

Shake until ice cold and serve in a deep champagne goblet with a large thin slice of lemon peel.

According to Fleming Bond invented this drink because " I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made. I hate small portions of anything, particularly when they taste bad."

Hmm I think that's how I like my everything "large, very strong, very cold and very well-made"- James knows my taste well.

Stay Classy out there.
