James Bond may have preferred shaken not stirred, but on Global James Bond Day (which is a thing) on Oct. 5th, we want to share a cocktail fit for Bond himself – a $100 Vesper Martini, served at Restaurant R’evolution in New Orleans.
What makes this cocktail worth the price is that it’s made with NOLET’S Reserve Gin, an unforgettable gin crafted with spicy saffron and subtle verbena. The limited production gin retails for $699 – a true luxury.
