“A dry martini,” he said. “One. In a deep champagne goblet.” “Oui, monsieur.” “Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?” I'm sure just about everyone knows where this came from...James Bond. The coolest (and the hottest) of the martini drinkers! Every bar that serves martini's should have his photo hanging somewhere. I thought I would loosen up with the brushstrokes on this one instead of the very tight, detailed work I normally do. It's actually more difficult than it sounds, for me.
