“Three measures (ounces) of Gordon’s, One measure of Vodka, Half measure of Kina Lillet (They stopped making this in the ‘80s, but blonde Lillet will do), shaken until ice cold, and served with a large, thin slice of lemon peel.”

From Casino Royale.

“Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?”

Bond... Lame Bond 006½

Will he also switch to spy for the Russians if Putin comes through with more money than MI-5? Or at least for the Dutch?

Don’t like beer and don’t like Craig. They have dumbed down 007 to nothing but a street thug.

Great CG special effects now though.

I reversed it (three vodka to one gin with a small dash of lillet) and it was quite good; a little gin flavor without the trainwreck the next morning...

I usually keep with my trusty Glenlivet 12-year.
Found a place where they sell a 1.75 litre bottle for less than $50.

If he mentions anything about his “Heinie”, I’m personally gonna kick James Bond’s ass.

James Bond's latest case is to track down looter guy.

From the photo, he appears to be in a canal somewhere in Amsterdam.
