Shaken or stirred.
The Vodka Martini recipe as specified by Mr Bond himself…….
- 3 measures of Gordon’s gin. 1 of vodka. 1/2 a measure of Kina Lillet [a brand of vermouth].slice of Lemon.
Unusually, Bond keeps both spirits. A traditional martini is made with gin, dry vermouth and either an olive or a lemon peel. A Vodka Martini normally replaces the gin with vodka. Hard drinking Bond adds the vodka to the gin.
Difference between shaken and stirred……..
- Shaken is a colder drink as the ice has more contact, a vodka martini has to be cold or it tastes nasty whereas a traditional martini should be stirred and doesn’t need to be so cold to keep the delicate flavours of the gin.
- Shaking dissolves air into the mix -“bruising” the gin – leaving a very sharp taste.
- A shaken Martini will better dissolve the Vermouth – giving the drink a less oily texture.
