The Lillet brings a pleasant brightness to the martini-style beverage. I'm not sure I followed Reeder's instructions for the spiral cut on the lemon quite right but the result wasn't bad. If I were to work at perfecting the technique, I'd want a thinner strip, I think.
Believe it or not, folks, ol' JB has his martini order all wrong. You're supposed to stir. Generally speaking, one only shakes beverages that involve fruit juices. In honor of the super-spy, though, Reeder calls for shaking the Vesper.
