Vesper

Vesper gin and vodka cocktail

James Bond had some strange ideas about drinks – you have him to thank for every watery shaken Martini you’ve ever received. At first glance, this seems like more of the same tomfoolery; why add vodka to a gin drink? Gaz Regan, in his infinite cocktailian wisdom, suggests that the vodka acts to dilute the drink and soften the gin. Surprisingly, it really does work. Excellent work, Mr. Bond.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake (really!) the liquid ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist the lemon peel over the drink, making sure to get lots of the lemon’s oil all over the surface, and drop it in (or discard and garnish with a prettier twist).

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
