Day Two, Cocktail Three
I’ve long been a James Bond fan.  I like both Sean Connery and Roger Moore in the role, although I have to admit that I do enjoy the style of the earlier Connery films.  The style, the women, the drinks…what’s not to like?  Of course, we all know that 007’s favorite drink is a vodka martini, shaken, not stirred.  However, in Casino Royale he enjoys a Vesper.   I’ve created my own twist on the Vesper.  Called the Smokey Vesper, the small amount of scotch really adds just a hint of peaty smokiness to the drink. 
  The Smokey Vesper
  • 4 oz Luksusowa vodka
  • 1-1/2 oz Plymouth gin
  • 1/2 oz Cutty Sark scotch
  • 3-4 dashes Agnostura bitters


Add all the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake to chill and pour into chilled a chilled coupe. Garnish with olives. This recipe makes two cocktails (who wants to drink one of these babies alone?).  Mix a couple up, put your favorite Bond movie in and enjoy!
