There are so many different types of martinis, but the one that stands out from the crowd is the Vesper Martini. This famous James Bond drink is simple to make and will leave you with plenty of time to mingle with your friends.
When you stir this up, expect one result: a little taste of danger before dinner. But be warned, you should probably only do one per guest. As Casino Royale author Ian Fleming once said: “I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made. I hate small portions of anything, particularly when they taste bad.”
