Classic Vesper cocktail ready to serve.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Lillet (white or blanc version)
  • 1/3 house vodka
  • 1 house gin
  • lemon twist (garnish)

Mixing Method: Shake

  1. Scoop a mixing glass 3/4 full with ice.
  2. Add all ingredients except the garnish.
  3. Cover with shaker cap and shake well.
  4. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass.
  5. Garnish with a long lemon twist.

Mixology Notes:

With flavors of orangey citrus, bitterness, sweetness and oak aging, the Lillet really makes this drink. Only a small amount is used, but you can always add more if you like.
