Kiss 2014 goodbye with my new favourite classic, the Vesper. Can we really go wrong with James Bond’s drink choice in Casino Royale?
‘Shaken, not stirred’
I love cocktail parties with my mum, after all, she is a pro. I take every opportunity to glean skills and drinks from her. I truly believe that cocktails are a craft; they take time, attention to detail, and proper technique.
She generously shared her recipe with me, and let me just say this is a perfect proportion. The sweetness and aroma of the Lillet, just make me smile.
Please make sure you cool the classes with ice and water prior to making the cocktails.
Strain the ice off the shaker into cooled glasses, sans ice!
