This drink was made famous by a certain spy who likes to repeat his last name twice on introduction.
I am of course referring to William Shatner.
Captain Kirk was just a cover to trick the Swiss.
A dry gin can be substituted for those who don’t like all the botanicals in Hendricks. If so reduce the vodka to an ounce and increase the gin to 2 1/2 ounces. Lillet is a French apertif somewhat like vermouth, but not close enough to substitute.
- 2 ounce Hendrick’s Gin
- 1 1/2 ounce Stolichnaya Vodka
- 1/2 ounce Lillet Blanc
- Long string of lemon rind
Fill a shaker with ice. Add liquors and mix thoroughly. Pour in Martini glass and garnish with rind.
