Shaken Drinking with James Bond and Ian Fleming
Johansson, Hiddleston and Weil, who founded acclaimed London bar Swift along with Rosie Stimpson, collaborated with The Ian Fleming Estate and Ian Fleming Publications on the project. The book, titled Shaken – Drinking with James Bond & Ian Fleming, the 007 official cocktail book includes 50 cocktail recipes inspired by both the author’s life and the adventures of James Bond.
Cocktails are at the glamorous heart of every Bond story. Whether it's the favored Martini, which features in almost every book, or a refreshing Negroni or Daiquiri, strong, carefully crafted drinks are a consistent feature of the Bond novels. Recipes are divided into five categories: Straight Up; On The Rocks; Tall; Fizzy; and Exotic. Sip on inventions such as Smersh, Moneypenny, That Old Devil M and Diamonds are Forever, as well as classic Bond cocktails such as the Vesper and, of course, the Dry Martini. Each recipe is accompanied by extracts from Fleming's writings - be it the passage where the classic drink was featured or a place, character or plot that inspired one of the drinks.
Explore Bond creator Ian Fleming's writings on the pleasures of drinking and sample 50 delicious cocktail recipes inspired by his work - developed by award-winning bar Swift.
