Vesper Martini

Elizabeth Taylor Cocktail

  • 3 measures of tonic water
  • 1 measure of cold water
  • 1/2 measure of Red Bull
  • Mix

    Carefully shake in cocktail shaker with ice, but be careful since this is carbonated so it won’t blow off the lid of shaker. It’s best that you don’t fully close the lid on shaker. Serve in martini glass. If you want you can decorate it with lemon peel or olive. 1 measure is 1 fluid ounce in this recipe.




3-4 ounces

Pro Tip:

Sorry Bond but Gin cocktails should always be stirred and not shaken! Shaking your Gin over ice causes it to become cloudy and ruins the presentation of your masterpiece.
