Video: Tanker Truck Sour Series: The Sour Vesper
In 1953, Ian Flemming wrote the lines to one of the most iconic cocktails in cinematic history, The Vesper. In his book, "Casino Royale," James Bond says "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?'"
That drink would soon live on in infamy later with the lines "shaken, not stirred."
And we all know that both 007 and Two Roads has a certain affinity for tricked out vehicles, so our own secret agent of a mixologist, Dave Blomberg, created the Two Roads version using the Tanker Truck Sour Series Sauvignon Blanc Gose instead of Lillet. We give you The Sour Vesper!
