Why We Like It

If you’re a big Bond (James Bond) fan, you’re probably planning to see Spectre, the latest in the James Bond franchise, this weekend. If you really want to get into the spirit, shake — don’t stir — this Spectre 007 Martini recipe inspired by a new release and accompanying recipe from Belvedere, which has created a line of Spectre Vodka in pretty cool bottles to coincide with the premiere.

This is a very dirty martini that calls for a “double strain,” which I accomplish by using a traditional cocktail strainer as well as a fine mesh sieve to catch the tiny muddled olive bits. But if you don’t want it quite so dirty and just want to do a single strain, skip the muddling part at the beginning (but don’t skip the olive brine).
