It’s James Bond Day today and we’re giving away 5 copies of the majestic new book Shaken: Drinking with James Bond and Ian Fleming, the official cocktail book’. The 007 official cocktail book – created in association with the Ian Fleming Estate, with a foreword by Fergus Fleming.
Explore Bond creator Ian Fleming’s writings on the pleasures of drinking and sample 50 delicious cocktail recipes inspired by his work – developed by award-winning bar Swift. This also features Ian Fleming’s writings on whisky, gin and other spirits.
Cocktails are at the glamorous heart of every Bond story. Whether it’s the favoured Martini, which features in almost every book, or a refreshing Negroni or Daiquiri, strong, carefully crafted drinks are a consistent feature of the Bond novels. Recipes are divided into five categories: Straight Up; On The Rocks; Tall; Fizzy, and Exotic. Sip on inventions such as Smersh, Moneypenny, That Old Devil M and Diamonds are Forever, as well as classic Bond cocktails such as the Vesper and, of course, the Dry Martini. Each recipe is accompanied by extracts from Fleming’s writings – be it the passage where the classic drink was featured or a place, character or plot that inspired one of the drinks.
