Bond Girl Cocktail

The Bond Girl Cocktail is a great addition to your holiday and everyday cocktail collection. A few years ago, while visiting Vienna, Austria during the Christmas market season, we were in need of sustenance after visiting multiple Christmas markets. Laden with Christmas ornaments and assorted holiday tchotchkes, we found ourselves near the University of Vienna, and popped into a restaurant frequented primarily by university students. To our delight, the restaurant had a great cocktail menu. Our bubbly, vibrant red Bond Girl Cocktail is created from taste memory of that Viennese holiday visit. After we’d enjoyed a few Bond Girl Cocktails, the local students commented to us that they were impressed that the much older visitors had such a great tolerance for these cocktails and were none worse for the wear. What cheek! Now, we share this cocktail with you; try one, or two, with our Tuna Tapenade spread on some crispy crackers or baguette slices. The Bond Girl Cocktail is a tad strong, after two you may feel shaken and stirred and think you are Pussy Galore! Remember, drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive. Enjoy!

  • Use 100% grapefruit juice; we don’t recommend using grapefruit juice adulterated with grape juice.
  • We recommend using a dry sparkling wine but an off-dry will work as well.
