New Deal Casino Royale Cocktail Recipe

Casino Royale

Our take on James Bond’s vesper martini. As you know, Bond gives very specific specs on how he likes his drink. After he takes a long sip he tells the barman, “Excellent … but if you can get a vodka made with grain instead of potatoes, you will find it still better.”

  • 1.5 oz Portland Dry Gin 33 or Gin No.1
  • 1 oz New Deal Vodka (made with 100% Oregon grain)
  • 1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
  • 2 dashes Grapefruit Bitters
  • 1 lemon peel, for garnish

Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice until very cold. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a large, thin slice of lemon peel.
