The ‘Vesper Martini’ is the famous cocktail ordered by one and only James Bond, in both the book and the movie Casino Royale. The book, published in 1953 says: ‘Three measures of gin, one of vodka, half a measure of Lillet Kina. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon-peel. Got it?’
