This weeks Cocktail Friday is meant for a “Secret Agent”! Let’s just say Martini’s are on our mind!

Netflix has just released 2 of Daniel Craig’s versions of Jame’s Bond (A little dark, but we love it). So, we think there is no better time to talk about Martini’s and the 007 take on this delicious adult beverage!

Not much on the inventor of the Martini is known, but can be traced back to the late 1900’s, possibly made in San Francisco’s, Occidental Hotel in the 1860’s. Others believe it comes from a near by city called Martinez, where the drink was made to honor a gold miner.

I don’t know about you, but James Bond was the start of this cocktail for me. “Shaken, not stirred”, is a line that has stuck with me ever since I was a child! 007 was defiantly the reason I wanted to become an adult and fast. I truly believe that this franchise has taken this cocktail to another level and slightly changing the variations to give it new life throughout the years.



Let’s get to making these amazing martini’s by first making the Classic 007 Martini from “Goldfinger”
