This literary twist on a Martini is a wickedly good-tasting cocktail.



3 Ounces Dry Gin

1 Ounce Vodka

1/2 Ounce Cocchi Americano

Lemon peel twist


  1. Place a scoop of ice in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add all ingredients.
  3. Shake for 20 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass.
  4. Add a lemon twist for garnish.


Ensure you use the right type of vermouth, with quinine, if you want this drink to taste like what Ian Fleming had in mind.

Use chilled ingredients poured into a chilled glass to enjoy this drink ice cold.
