“Bond sat at the bar of The Tiara and sipped a Vodka Martini and examined the great gambling room with a professional eye.”

Ian Fleming: “Diamonds Are Forever” (1956)

“Bond went into the lobby bar to gather his thoughts and ordered a vodka martini, explaining to the barman the best way to achieve the effect of vermouth without diluting the vodka too much. Ice in the shaker, add a slurp of vermouth, pour out the vermouth, add the vodka, shake well, strain into a chilled glass, add a slice of lemon peel, no pith.”

William Boyd: “Solo” (2013)
