I love a good drink. This being said, I should also mention that I don't drink very often. When I do have a drink I go for the classics. Gin and tonic, rum runners, and a really well made martini.
In a recent James Bond movie Casino Royale, James orders a Vesper. "Three measures of Gordon's, one of Vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake very well until it is ice cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel."
In my version of the drink I used Clear Heart Gin, Ciroc Vodka and Lillet. ( Kina Lillet is no longer available) The Clear Heart Gin has smooth orange undertones. I decided to add a orange peel instead of the lemon peel.
serves 2 ( or one international spy)
3 parts Gin
1 part Vodka
1/2 part Lillet
One orange peel
Ice to fill the shaker
Combine all ingredients in a very well chilled cocktail shaker and shake. Pour through strainer into a chilled martini glass and add orange peel.
