Jul 8, 2019

Category: Living

Most folks are familiar with James Bond’s on-screen drink of choice: a dry vodka martini — shaken, not stirred. But what you might not be aware of is that 007 was actually a much more well-rounded tippler in Ian Fleming’s novels — often opting for things like scotch and soda, champagne, and a slew of other alternatives. Now, you can learn all about those beverages and how to make them courtesy of this coffee table book.

Entitled Shaken: Drinking with James Bond & Ian Fleming, this magnificent tome is the official 007 cocktail book. And it’s loaded from cover to cover not just with 50 stupendous recipes Bond himself would be proud to imbibe, but also gorgeous full-color photography, excerpts from Fleming’s writings where the drinks were featured, and a foreword from the novelist’s nephew, Fergus Fleming. And these aren’t just some humdrum recipes, either — they were developed by none other than fabled, award-winning London bar, Swift. Pick up this super-spy cocktail recipe book for yourself in digital or hardcover versions starting at $15.

Purchase: $159
