Channel your inner Bond Girl with these 'Double-0-Heavenly' cocktails.

Inspired by James Bond

Inspired by James Bond

With the launch of the latest James Bond film, Spectre, we take a look at classic cocktails with a delectable Bond Girl twist. Throughout the years, James Bond has sipped everything from Champagne to Tequila, but the drink that the 007 agent is most inextricably linked to is the martini - "shaken, not stirred".

The Flat White Martini is a delicious twist on this signature serve, which is even smoother than Bond himself. Comprised of Baileys, espresso and vodka, there is Dr. No doubt about it - this cocktail is an absolute must for cinema-goers and Baileys lovers this autumn.

Other cocktails inspired by the iconic film franchise include The Moneypenny, a blend of vodka and raspberries; and a cocktail that was actually ordered by a Bond girl in 1980s hit 'Never Say Never Again', The Domino Spicy Bloody Mary. Come together with your Bond girls to toast.

The Flat White Martini

50ml Baileys® Original Irish Cream Liqueur

25ml Smirnoff No. 21® Vodka

25ml Espresso

3 coffee beans

While James Bond prefers his martinis dry - and shaken, not stirred - this delicious twist on the classic espresso martini is the perfect choice for any Bond girl. The cocktail has caused a stir amongst caffeine and cocktail lovers alike since being recently created in Selfridges, London.

The Moneypenny

1 highball glasses

30ml of raspberry vodka

10 fresh raspberries

Flesh and seeds of a passion fruit

2 teaspoons sugar syrup

60ml. (1/4 cup) cloudy apple juice

60ml (1/4 cup) orange juice

Crushed ice

Garnish: apple fan, raspberries, and sprig of mint

Whilst not strictly a Bond girl, Miss Moneypenny is one of the most iconic characters within the James Bond series. This cocktail has been especially created for the character to represent her sweet nature, but also her power over Bond.

The Domino Spicy Bloody Mary

85ml Tomato Juice

40ml Vodka

1 dash of lemon juice

½ teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

2-3 drops of Tabasco sauce

Garnish: one lime wedge

As ordered by 007's romantic interest Domino played by the glamorous Kim Basinger in 80s classic, Never Say Never Again. This fiery cocktail is an appetizing twist on the classic Bloody Mary.
