"Shaken, not stirred"
"Shaken, not stirred"
  What is agent 007 without his famous martini?
 This Art Deco silver-plated cocktail shaker is a classy way to create a martini that James would love.  
A shaken martini is usually colder than one stirred, since the ice has had a chance to swish around the drink more.

The Vesper
This martini appeared in the very first novel, Casino Royale.   It is Bond's own invention.  Here is the recipe:

3 measures of Gordon's Gin

1 measure of vodka

1/2 measure Kina Lillet vermouth

Shake it very well until it's ice cold, pour into a deep champagne glass.  Garnish with a slice of lemon peel.
 This classic cocktail shaker is available to purchase in my shop here 
so you can create your own famous drinks.
