We all have heard, at least once, this phrase spoken by the legendary James Bond.

The British 007 has made known to the whole world the "Vesper cocktail", invented in 1953 by Ian Fleming in his novel Casino Royale.

In recent years the cocktails that set the trends and are increasingly being offered in the American bar and in the most luxurious hotels around the world are those preferred by the stars of cinema, music and art of the last century.

So, if you want to drink a good cocktail and feel like a star, here is what to order:

Hemingway Daiquiri: created by a Cuban bartender for the writer Ernest Hemingway, lover of alcohol but unfortunately diabetic. It is a normal daiquiri (made with white rum, lime juice, syrup and brown sugar), without the addition of sugar syrup. It is an "Any Time” cocktail,  then tastable at any time of the day.


Cosmopolitan is the favorite cocktail of columnist Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and City (Sarah Jessica Parker). Made with Vodka, Cointreau, lime juice, Cranberry, is basically an "After Dinner" cocktail.

Mint Julep: J.Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) sips it at the Plaza Hotel. It is an American cocktail  made with Whiskey Bourbon and mint. It is an “After Dinner” cocktail and has a very decided taste, suitable for whiskey lovers. It is said that Leo appreciates it also in real life.

"Our" Spritz: drunk by Robert De Niro both in the movie "Meet the Fockers" and in real life. Made with Aperol, sparkling wine and soda, this is the king of Italian aperitifs and, nowadays, even of overseas aperitifs. It is obviously a "Pre dinner” cocktail.

Mai Tai: Polynesian cocktail made with rum (white and dark), orange curacao, orgeat syrup, lime juice. Known in the world thanks to the movie Blue Hawaii starring Elvis Presley. The paper parasol decoration is a must!

Now the choice is up to you: try these or make your top 5 favorite, sipping them by the pool, by the sea or in the bar of your favorite luxury hotel!
