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).

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
