If you think of James Bond, what do you think of? Perhaps his Aston Martin DB5 and breathtaking car chases; witty retorts and a raised eyebrow; or perhaps you think of his signature drink, a vodka martini – shaken, not stirred…

…and when it comes to drinks, the truth is that these days most people associate James Bond simply with vodka martinis and Bollinger.

However, in my book – available exclusively online – you’ll learn that James Bond is much more than vodka martinis and Champagne.

The book examines the world of James Bond from the point of views of his drinks and covers the cocktails, wines and other drinks from Ian Fleming’s novels and the EON film series. As well as information on drinks appearing in the books and films you’ll also find a complete list of cocktail recipes to allow you to mix the drinks for your friends.

What other people say

“a comprehensive, well researched, yet slim and accessible companion for anyone reading a Fleming book or watching an Eon flick who suddenly realises they’d like to know a little more about a particular beverage [of] their hero’s.”
Adam Bollard, MI6

“this book is a treasure chest of drink information and recipes… the book is definitely worth your time, especially if you are interested in doing a bit more, um, research into the Bond high life.”
Kendall Giles

World Gourmand Awards 2014

The book also qualified to compete in the 2014 World Gourmand Awards, after being judged best in its class in the UK and will take on other cocktail books from other countries in May 2014 at the World Cookbook Fair in Beijing.
