'The complete guide to the drinks of James Bond' book coming soon

22-Nov-2010 • Collecting

If you've ever wandered into a bar after watching a James Bond movie wishing for 007's knowledge of drinks and the confidence to get exactly what you want then a new book has been written specially for you.

The author, David Leigh, is a lifelong fan of James Bond, having picked up his father's copy of "Casino Royale" at the age of eight, and when he added Corgi's Aston Martin DB5 to his collection he was absolutely hooked.

David says, "The common perception of James Bond's drinks is simply of vodka martinis and Champagne. However, if you go back to the books in particular, but also the early films, you'll find that 007 enjoys a much wider range of drinks."

"The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond" takes a comprehensive look at the drinks consumed by 007 in both Ian Fleming's novels and the EON movies up to "Quantum of Solace" and will be available online from November 26, in time for the holiday season. It even includes cocktail recipes, including Ian Fleming's recipes for the Vesper from "Casino Royale" and the vodka martini.

Although "The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond" won't be available until November 26 you can get on the "early bird list" to receive notification as soon as the book is launched.
