A Vodka Martini made with a muddled olive and brine will be part of the activity to mark Belvedere vodka’s partnership with the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre.
The Belvedere Spectre 007 Martini combines the luxury Polish vodka with a muddled Sicilian green olive, dry vermouth and Sicilian green olive brine – shaken, not stirred. See below for the recipe.
It was announced alongside Belvedere’s new global TV advertising campaign that ties in with the film, presenting the intricacies of a classic Vodka Martini. It features Mexican actor Stephanie Sigman (pictured below) who plays Estrella in the opening scene of Spectre.
She said: “Ordering a Vodka Martini takes knowledge and self-assurance, which has been demonstrated effortlessly by James Bond throughout the years. His cool attitude and stylish sophistication have gone hand in hand with his choice of Vodka Martini. Belvedere is a great match.”
Spectre is due to be released in the UK on October 26, 2015, followed by the US on November 6, 2015.
