The drink for bad girls…

Casino-Royale-Daniel-Craig-drinking-martiniFrom Isabelle Drake

Is there any better combination than a sexy guy and the perfect martini? Even better if that guy is handsome, charming, fictional and creates a martini and names it after you. Bonus? You aren’t a good girl who does everything right. You’re a double agent who gets to travel the world, do naughty things and look great while doing them.


Double yum.


James Bond’s famous “shaken not stirred” martini, The Vesper Martini, is named after Vesper Lynd, a character first introduced in Ian Fleming’s 1953 novel Casino Royale. Despite her poor treatment of him, coming in the form of her being a double agent who assisted in his kidnapping, he continues to think about her. Super-secret badass spies have a weakness for smart, tricky women. If you’re a up for a good time, watch Casino Royale and its sequel, Quantum of Solace, back to back.

While you are watching, you’ll need a Vesper in hand.

The obvious question…if you were a badass spy (maybe you already are) what would you want your drink to be? A cocktail with a complicated mixology? A beautifully shaded red wine? A crisp white? Or maybe a hard to find craft beer?

Tell us. Here at Lady Smut these things matter.

    Casino Royal is my fav bond film. I’m still willing to rally a mob who are in favor of Idris Elba taking over Bond when Daniel Craig moves on, btw.

    I have to confess that I’m not big on the alcohol, but I love a local fun bar that has mocktails. They make this “Southern Brew” mocktail that is just too delicious! Slurp. It’s fun going out for a ‘girls night out’ and all. I’ve only recently gotten into the habit and it’s the perfect way to celebrating reaching a writing deadline. 🙂

      Meeting deadlines should always be celebrated! My fav non-alcoholic drink, chocolate milk shake. With real whipped cream. Yum!

    I saw yesterday that Daniel Craig “would rather break this glass and slash his wrists” before doing another Bond movie. Well, I would rather slash mine than spend another dollar on a Bond movie. OF ALL THE NERVE! We all gave him his fabulous lifestyle by spending money on his movies. He’s seen my last dollar. If I want to watch them, I’ll do it on tv!

    Mmmm… I drink a dirty vodka martini, no vermouth, with 3 blue cheese stuffed olives. That’s the Vixen martini 🙂
