To celebrate our ENDURING LOVE for Daniel Craig in anticipation of his 55th birthday, MI6 unveils a special cocktail in his honour. Channeling Daniel’s electric blue eyes, this vodka cocktail (use Belevedere if you want to be super-loyal) might seem like something you already may know but is actually quite different. This is very much in keeping with Daniel’s record-breaking take on the iconic 007 role.

The simple but satisfying libation can easily be made in your DREAM HOUSE without elaborate tools such as a GOLDEN COMPASS. Like Daniel, this drink has hidden depths of strength. Drinking too many of these may make you see some COWBOYS AND ALIENS or even a SPECTRE or two. Drinking a lot can send you down THE ROAD TO PERDITION so enjoy responsibly.

In a chilled martini glass with ice, pour:

  • 2 ounces Sweet and Sour Mix
  • 2 ounces vodka (Belevedere since Daniel is the face of the brand but any will suffice)
  • 1 ounce Blue curacao

Top with 007-Up and stir...not shake.
