Although No. 3 London Dry Gin was the centrepiece of the evening, thanks have to be expressed to the creative talents that exquisitely framed the masterpiece: Alessandro Palazzi of Dukes Hotel impressed, as ever, with his signature Classic Dry Martini and French 75; Mark Jenner of The Coburg Bar at The Connaught was swamped with requests for the Negroni and Corpse Reviver #2; Miles Davies from Hix Bar Soho was enthusiastically mixing Nick Strangeway's No. 3 Duellers' Cup and the Aviation Smash.


Dukes Bar serves Ian Fleming James Bond Martinis

Dukes bartender Alessandro Palazzi, who is as passionate about his trade as his fondness for the spy thriller series, which this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film to hit the silver screen.
In honor of the spy hero, Palazzi created two martini recipes in Flemings honor since arriving at the bar five years ago: the Fleming 89 and Flemings Classic Vesper. When Fleming wrote his first book in the 1950s, everything in society was strictly prescribed, including drinks and cocktail hour, Palazzi explains. At Dukes, Palazzi has recreated the Vesper by using No. 3 London Dry Gin, Lillet Blanc, Angostura bitters, and Potocki vodka, a Polish vodka, in honor of the real-life inspiration for Vesper Lynd, Polish-born Christine Granville who was a wartime spy and reportedly Flemings lover. Its the most requested Bond-themed martini at the bar, where Palazzi serves about 50 a night at 16.95 (21) a pop. Its a steep pricetag, but Palazzi points out that drinkers get a cocktail and a show with their order, as drinks are executed with the pomp and circumstance expected of a former Fleming hangout: guests watch, seated at their tables as Palazzi wheels out a trolley laden with bottles of spirits which have just been pulled from the deep freeze. The Fleming 89, meanwhile, was created in partnership with London-based perfumery Floris whose No. 89 Eau de Toilette was Bonds signature scent. Inspired by tonka beans used in the cologne, Palazzi infuses 750 ml of Russian vodka with a handful of the vanilla-scented beans to create his special elixir. In a frosted martini glass, he adds a sugared rose, the infused vodka, English vermouth, Lillet, a few drops of chocolate bitter, tops it off with Russian vodka and as a final touch, gives it a spritz of rose liqueur, to create a chocolaty, dessert-like cocktail for 18.95 (24). With the Bond franchise celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first movie release, here are a few tips from Palazzi on how to clink to the milestone with the kind of martini Bond himself would approve of.
