If you’re taking your cues from James Bond, nothing says sexy and debonair like ordering your vodka martini “shaken, not stirred.” From Dr. No to Quantum of Solace, the famous spy has never failed to demonstrate his elegant taste in cocktails. With the new Bond Mixology iOS app that traces (literally) every drink the secret agent has ever consumed, you can get your drink on just like 007 himself.
Armed with drink recipes, serving instructions and IMDB filmographies for all 23 movies, this comprehensive app is a sleek encyclopedia of Bond’s boozes of choice – and a must-have for any Bond fan (or booze fan).
The hardcore Bondophiles out there will be glad to hear that the app’s Cabinet tab provides every mixer, spirit and brand that the Commander himself drank throughout the series. If you want to stock your bar like a boss, then this feature recommends a list of about 75 items for you.
But the coolest part about this app? It provides a minute-by-minute breakdown of every on-screen drink in each film, complete with detailed descriptions of the action and the exact scene time the drink makes its appearance. Sounds like the makings of an awesome, slightly dangerous, potential-to-morph-into-everyone-talking-in-awful-British-accents, Bond-inspired drinking game.
So whether you’re trying to impress that girl you just met at the bar, are planning to throw a classy 007-themed soiree, or are just looking for a night of drunken debauchery courtesy of Mr. Bond, the app is a fun and savvy addition to your iOS device for just $1.99. I’ll drink to that.
