Conjured straight from Ian Flemingís Casino Royale, this infamous Martini was James Bondís cocktail of choice, named after Vesper Lynd, Bondís doomed double-agent girlfriend. This very potent cocktail appropriately calls for Russian vodka, symbolic of Vesper Lyndís allegiance to the Russians, served with an orange twist to complement the Lillet, a delicious replacement for vermouth, in Bondís preferred glass, a champagne coupe. Of course, this drink is shaken, not stirred.
