007: Double Bourbons

What were Bond's drinking habits across the books and how do they differ in the films?

We discuss aspects of James Bond's drinks and along the way we mull over the loss of local flavour, drinks missing from the films, Bond's salad dressing recipe, chaining carte blanche's, following 007's trail in NYC, substitutions for illusive Kina Lillet (and how they blew a big marketing opportunity), how to mix a perfect Vesper, shaking versus stirring, brandless bourbon, Ian Fleming's gin, and when eleven is too many. We round out by discussing our favourite real-world Bond locations we've visited.
