We celebrated Bastille Day with this classic cocktail. The Vesper, popularized by Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale, uses Lillet Blanc and gin. I used Plymouth Gin, which is very clean and doesn’t disturb the taste of the Lillet.

Ingredients: 3 parts Lillet Blanc, 1 part Plymouth Gin, orange twist (optional)

Combine Lillet and gin in a shaker with ice. Shake it up! Serve in a martini glass with orange twist. Enjoy!
