"James Bond Drinks" is well laid out with sections on spirits, cocktails, wine and beer as well as a section on equipment and glassware. It is not so much a bar tending guide as it is a history of 007 and his beverage preferences in book or on the big screen. Through the book, the author provides the book and movie references including quotes for each drink as well as a history of the drink in the real world. While I am not a huge 007 fan, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and learned much about the history of cocktails, wine and champagne producers and brewers throughout the world. The author has a style that is down-to-earth and easy to follow while educating the reader.
On top of all that the book has to offer, there are several references for additional background on all things James Bond, mixology or both together.
I've seen 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' 20 times, but never noticed Bond drinking Enzian or ordering a 'double Steinhager'. So this book adds to the movies that I thought I knew everything about. The paperback version of this book now sells upwards to $268 on amazon, so I got the kindle. Nice to have it handy on my Ipad gadget from Q.
To catalog all of it, a man would have to be a rare combination of dedicated, meticulous and just a little fanatical to scour every single line of text and every frame of film just to collect the raw data of what Bond drinks and then go even farther with exhaustive research not only on the wines and cocktails but also on the recipes and ingredients, suggesting alternatives for those that have changed or vanished completely since the original works were produced.
It's actually a huge job and David Leigh pulls it off magnificently; organizing the book into logical sections, listing hard spirits and aperitifs, mixed drinks, wines and beers (yes, 007 likes a good brew every now and again). In this second edition, he has updated the drinks to include what Bond drinks in the upcoming film Skyfall and added a new section called Q Branch in which he lists all the glassware and appropriate gadgets you'll need for a successful mission behind the bar.Read more ›
