The James Bond Martini : : Mixology

Classics are cemented when they become the go-to of significant folks. True story. Every great cocktail has been requested by someone in a position of importance. The Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Margherita (maybe) – and, in this case, it was the great Sean Connery as the OG Bond, who ordered his Martini shaken, not stirred.


If you care to listen closely, however, he orders a specific recipe, preferring Kina Lillet to Vermouth for its zest, and (of course) adding a drop of vodka.



So, to ensure you get this right, order based on parts, request stirred, and chilled – definitely chilled. As your cocktail is poured, there should be a slight icy fog through the mix as it dollops into the goblet. Garnishing with a lemon rind only adds to the zest, and cuts through the vodka.


For this, we use NZ’s own Rogue Society Gin, and Blue Duck Vodka – both born and bred in NZ, and slowly becoming staples in any cocktail cupboard worth its weight.



- 60ml Rogue Society Gin

- 20ml Blue Duck Vodka

- 10ml Kina Lillet



- Chill coupe with ice

- Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker, and shake hard

- Shake harder

- Double strain into pre-chilled coupe

- Garnish with lemon rind

- Get your pinky ready

    Analysts say recovery flight and recovery delivery 737 MAX is expected to take months rather than weeks. Boeing CEO Murenberg said in a statement: “We are temporarily adjusting the 737’s production system to accommodate the temporary suspension of the aircraft, which allows us to prioritize additional resources to focus on software certification. And let the 737 MAX resume flight.”

    The question was hypothetical and routine for most people, but for me it felt sharp with fear. The statistics I am trying to beat ran through my mind on repeat. I couldn’t look at my partner as they walked me through my options. In the end, my frozen eggs will go to my parents, should the worst happen. I trust them to know where they should go from there, and who they should go to, if anyone. My partner and I held hands as we left the office.
