Recipe Corner: The Vesper

The Vesper is the original James Bond Martini. It does not serve this drink well to shake it, however. This is a stirred cocktail and garnished with a lemon twist. This is a great introductory gin drink for the non-gin drinker. The vodka will cut down the botanical nature of the gin, and the Cocchi Americano adds a little citrus and bitter note to the drink. Take this one for a spin this Spring!

2 oz of London Dry Gin
1 oz of vodka (I prefer a potato based vodka)
.5 oz of Cocchi Americano
