- March 2014
- 3 measures gin
- 1 measure vodka
- ½ measure Lillet (see tip)
- Lemon twist to serve
- Shake (don’t stir) all the ingredients over ice (see tip if making for a party), then strain into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with a lemon twist (see tip), then serve straightaway.
Bond mentions Kina Lillet, which no longer exists. Use Lillet, instead, a similar French vermouth, available from drinks shops or thewhiskyexchange.com
For a crowd, scale up the quantities and make it in a jug. Keep covered in the freezer for a few hours before serving. Pour into frozen martini glasses to serve.
For the perfect lemon twist garnish, pare off a strip of peel from an unwaxed lemon with a sharp knife. Turn it pith up and slice off as much of the white pith as you can. Twist over the martini in the glass to add tiny drops of lemon oil to the drink.
