Our review:

Martini in style but with the hard edges smoothed and a hint of eastern spice added.

History:

Created in 2008 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England.

James Bond named his favourite style of Martini (Vesper) after the beautiful Russian agent Vesper Lynd. This version is 'Reversed' due to the dramatically increased ratio of aromatised wines. Fittingly my drink mixes East and West European ingredients with the introduction of Becherovka. And where there is Becherovka there should be tonic water. (See Be-ton)
