Mixologist: 007 Martini

Why does there need to be a special recipe for a Bond martini? Three reasons:

One: because Spectre is coming out on November 6th, and we’ve been watching one Bond film a week since August in preparation. (If you’d like to catch up, you’ll have to do one every other day or so, but they’re honestly pretty good films to watch from the cross trainer).

Two: there’s a new Bond girl, her name is Stephanie Sigman, and she was pretty friggin’ awesome in Miss Bala, so we’re expecting great things.

Three: Belvedere, king of the special occasion, has done a limited edition Bond bottle. Clearly, their priorities are straight.


2 oz. Belvedere vodka
1/3 oz. dry vermouth (try La Quintinye Vermouth Royal)
1 Sicilian green olive
1/6 oz. Sicilian green olive brine

Gently muddle olives in base of mixing glass. Add remaining ingredients and shake hard with ice. Double strain into a chilled martini glass.

This is a test
