Tell me there is no truth to this story. They can't take away the martini from James Bond. The Martini is like an appendage to his right hand. No. No. No. We'll they be replacing moneypenny also? Will James drive a mustang?
Here is some information on the possible change to the signature cocktail.
A recent feature in Time Magazine features a picture of the new 007 at a bar.
Smirnoff vodka will be 007's tipple of choice in Casino Royale, despite a much-publicized break with the franchise in 2002 (when Smirnoff was outbid by Finlandia for partnering rights to Die Another Day). According to James Thompson, president of Smirnoff global marketing, "The James Bond and Smirnoff brands have gone hand in hand for more than 40 years, and throughout our rich history together, we have both remained true to our roots. An accompanying zillion dollar worldwide marketing campaign will be coming to your town soon.
So far, there has been no official word on Bond's other favorite drink. Will Bollinger continue as the "official champagne of James Bond," or will another label make an appearance (perhaps Taittinger, which is featured in the novel)?
From Eva Green's official Web site, more proof that James Bond won't be drinking mineral water in Casino Royale.
Meanwhile, I am off to Mexico for some fun. My signature drink will not change. Martini coming right up! Enjoy your weekend and have fun!
