Shaken : Drinking with James Bond and Ian Fleming, the Official Cocktail Book
by Ian Fleming and Fergus Fleming




Overview -

Readers can explore James Bond creator Ian Fleming's writing on the pleasures of drinking and mix themselves fifty delicious cocktails from recipes inspired by his books and developed by award-winning London bar, Swift.

Both Bond and Fleming were partial to a stiff drink. In both fiction and real life, cocktails were an important and well-chosen accompaniment to adventure and daring and often relaxing. Fleming made the Martini famous with Bond's ritual of always ordering it "shaken, not stirred". But in every James Bond book a wide selection of strong, sophisticated and carefully crafted drinks are essential details to the story.

The recipes in Shaken 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 illustrated by a stunning full-color photo of the drink and wonderful extracts from Fleming's writing--taken from the passage where the drink was featured or a place, character, or plot that inspired it.

Shaken features a foreword written by the novelist's nephew, Fergus Fleming, as well as plenty of his writing on whisky, gin, rum, and other spirits.
