“This is the version of the martini that Bond orders in Casino Royale. Make it like Bond: 'I never have more than one drink before dinner. But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well made.'”

Not exactly Bond's Vesper. The original recipe called for 100 proof Vodka and 94 proof Gin. Over the last 40 years distillers have, generally, lowered the proofs of their liquor. If you really want the taste, and kick, of the original, use Stoly 100 and Tanqueray Gin. Then as Matt noted in his review, use Lillet Blanc with a few drops of bitters.

The original recipe called for Kina Lillet which had Quinine in it. Since this is no longer available, use Lillet Blanc with a few drops of Angostura Bitters to simulate the bitter taste of Quinine.
