3 James Bond inspired cocktails for you to enjoy

Finally, after an 18 month wait, the next instalment of the 007 franchise is here; No Time To Die.

Delayed due to the pandemic, the 25th film – and Daniel Craig’s last outing as Bond – hit the big screens in the UK on 30th September.

What’s the story? Bond is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica after leaving active service. However, his peace is short-lived as his old CIA friend, Felix Leiter, shows up and asks for help.

We thought it was a great opportunity to celebrate some of Secret Agent 007’s favourite cocktails that have featured on screen over the past 59 years.
