Kina Lillet

"A dry martini," [Bond] said. "One. In a deep champagne goblet."

 

"Oui, monsieur."

 

"Just a moment. Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?"

 

"Certainly, monsieur." The barman seemed pleased with the idea.

 

(from the 1953 novel "Casino Royale" by Ian Fleming)
