Cocchi Americano is supposed to be the Vesper Martini’s best aperitif vs. that of Lillet Blanc. Let’s create the traditional James Bond Vesper and taste the different and pick a winner. James Bond would be proud!

Doug is in town, the Vesper is one of the drinks he discovered on our show years ago, so it’s only right to retry it and expand his palate against the Cocchi Americano.

Sorry, no Gordon’s Gin for this one.
