Blueberry Mint Vesper

The Vesper a drink invented and named by fictional secret agent James Bond in the 1953 novel Casino Royale.  I like to take a classic original, throw a little fresh fruit and some herbs into the mix making a “WOW” drink


Before making this drink remember that James Bond drank this, it is not for the light hearted drinker!

 This cocktail is strong, a drink you will want to sip.
