‘I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well;made.’

[007, Casino Royal]

James Bond. The man likes to drink. Ian Fleming’s novels see him down 317 alcoholic beverages in 12 books. That means agent 007 was going for a top up (on average) once every seven pages.

Bond fans the world over have found themselves trying to keep up with him ever since ordering vodka martinis as pre film drinks to get in the mood each time a new Bond feature is released. This year Barz8 Events is offering them the chance to learn to load their own…

The License to Swill Cocktail Class will teach participants the skills and stories behind Bond’s cocktails of choice; including the Vesper Martini, Americano, Mint Julep and The Stinger.

Classes wil be held in the proximity of Leicester Square on the release date of Skyfall, 26th October.
