bar miyako and JB’s first cocktails




今週の #barmiyako は、21日(祝)はお休みさせていただきますが、それ以外は月〜土、19時〜25時まで営業しておりますので、ご興味のある方は是非遊びにいらしてください!007ファンの方でもそうでない方も歓迎です!

The legendary spy James Bond 007 is famous for his love of martinis, such as the vodka martini (shaken, not stirred) and the Vesper martini (his very own creation), but he actually does drink a variety of many other cocktails while saving the world and seducing beautiful women. In fact, the very first cocktail Bond orders in the 1953 Ian Fleming novel “Casino Royale,” is an Americano (photo right) – a drink made with Campari, sweet vermouth and soda. The cocktail, which appears a number of times in the novels, originated in Italy and is said to have been the favorite drink of American ex-pats during Prohibition, hence the name.

In the 2006 movie version of “Casino Royale” starring Daniel Craig, the first drink Bond orders is “a large Mount Gay with soda,” which results in a Mount Gay and coke being served. Mount Gay is a rum from Barbados, made with exceptional Barbadian sugar molasses and pure water filtered from coral limestone, of which the island is made. The rum is said to have been favored by Fleming – a well-known rum drinker.
