Vesper

  • Base Spirit Gin
  • Preparation Stirred
  • Flavor Boozy
  • Served Up

The drink first appeared in Ian Fleming’s 1953 novel Casino Royale when Bond asked for “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.”  While we prefer our martinis stirred and not shaken, feel free to do as Bond does with this one. But be warned, if you take it at Bond’s recommended size, you will need to pace yourself.

Miracle & Sippin’ Santa Moving Forward: 2020 Locations Announced

Conceived by Greg Boehm (technically his mother) of Cocktail Kingdom fame, the immersive holiday bars celebrate Christmas through seasonal takeover/pop-ups across the world. Each Miracle location features the same menu and drink ware, but the over-the-top holiday decor is created by each venue–and it gets competitive. Sippin’ Santa is Jeff ‘Beachbum’ Berry’s spinoff event, a tiki-Christmas mashup.
