Back in 1962, Sean Connery’s request for a “martini, shaken not stirred” made with vodka helped change how people made 007’s favourite cocktail—from using traditional gin to making it vodka-based. Over the course of the last 22 films, many Bond Girls have inspired their own drinks too. Here is a special selection of adult recipes from the MI6 bar tending division to help everyone celebrate the occasion (click here for recipes for agents of non-legal drinking age).

The Tatiana Romanova
1 1/2 oz. Raspberry vodka
Cold 7-Up soda
1 splash cranberry juice

Pour the vodka in to the glass with a splash of cranberry juice, topping up with 7-Up.

The Jill Masterson
5 oz. Brut Champagne, chilled
1/2 oz. Cognac
1 teaspoon simple honey syrup
2 dashes orange bitters
1 twist of lemon

Rim a Champagne flute with the lemon twist and drop the twist into the glass. Add the cognac, honey syrup, and bitters. Gently top with Champagne.

The Plenty O'Toole
1 measure Irish whiskey
1 measure Bailey's Irish cream
1 measure hazelnut liqueur

Shake and strain into an old-fashioned glass three-quarters filled with broken ice.

The Holly Goodhead
1 measure Cognac
1 measure Peach Brandy
1 measure Dubonnet
2 dashes Pastis

The Octopussy
