Shaken, Not Stirred Martini

Homemade Alcoholic Vesper Martini with a Lemon Twist


With it being National Martini Month, it seems only fitting that we toast one of the drink’s most famous onscreen versions. Author Ian Fleming provided character James Bond with a taste for Vesper Martinis—shaken, not stirred. Enjoy this take on a classic.
