From the bartender’s corner – Ungava Vesper

People who have read the Ian Fleming’s 1953 classic “Casino Royale” or have seen the 2006 Bond movie would recognize this double agent’s name (Vesper Lynd) for whom 007 was going to give up his career; however she died… but the recipe was made famous in the movie… “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”. Translated to Rajib’s bar who is still experimenting with the Canadian Ungava gin, that would be gin, vodka and Lillet Blanc in those proportions…

    Great timing – just made a Vesper on Sat evening. Went to H&F Bottle Shop for the Lillet – but she recommended a substitute. Excellent cocktail !!
