Carolina DuKarras starts falling in love with Tristan Dugarry when to thank her for dancing with him his first night in Dorin, he gives her a single yellow rose. She later becomes a spy. For this reason, I wanted to do something light, that played on The Vesper Martini, James Bond’s signature libation, shaken not stirred.
I subbed out a few liqueurs, including 007’s standard Lillet, (which I LOVE, but I didn’t want Caro just stealing Jame’s drink!) before landing on Saint Germaine, derived from Elderflower, a little sweeter, a little less subtle, and one of my all time favorites.
The Actual Drink
1/2 oz Saint Germaine
1 oz Vodka
2 oz Gin
Add liquor to shaker over ice. Shake (don’t stir!) until chill, and strain into a chilled martini glass.
Drink while quietly listening to the people around you and intuiting what that means for you and the people around you.
