Vesper: The “Official” Cocktail of James Bond

Aficionados of the iconic saga will be sure to recognize the famous “Vesper” cocktail, created specially by Ian Flemming in his book Casino Royale, the first written outing for the very special and very British agent 007. A cocktail concocted by James Bond himself: “This drink’s my own invention. I’m going to patent it when I think of a good name”; and inspiration did not take long to strike, once double agent Vesper Lynd, the first Bond Girl in the novel, appeared on the scene.

A cocktail that appears again in the film adaptation of Casino Royale in 2006; while Flemming’s first book describes the cocktail’s precise composition, you can discover the secrets of the “Vesper” from cocktail expert Baptiste Bochet here.
