Now I mentioned a drink that you can't make, and this next one hits really hard. Its such a tragedy you can't make this one because its the iconic James Bond martini drink from Casino Royale, The Vesper Martini. It gets it's name from the love interest in the film, Vesper Lynd. The reason you can't make it anymore is because one of the ingredients, Kina Lillet, has been discontinued in production. Kina Lillet was a very bitter wine that lots of classic cocktails used because of its bitterness. However, more fruity flavor and sweet wines became high in demand and Kina Lillet was replaced with Lillet Blanc. Click the link next to the drink's name for the whole story and history behind Kina Lillet and the James Bond Drink.
