With the release of Spectre (here in the States anyway) this Friday, November 6, Parade sat down with Daniel Craig to discuss the film.
For all the fans out there that are super disappointed about Daniel leaving the role of Bond, he had this to say,
Will I retire into a sort of stupor and not do anything? I hope not. I hope I can continue to work as hard as I have been doing for another couple of years, but I honestly haven't given a great deal of thought to what will happen after Bond.
So if he doesn't get work, could he return again? Possibly.
James Bond's New Martini...
In the "Around the Table" section of parade, they listed how to make the new drink featured in Spectre. First, Alison Ashton said this,
What better way to celebrate the upcoming James Bond flick, Spectre, than with a new cocktail created by Alessandro Palazzi, head bartender at Dukes London? The chic Mayfair hotel was a favorite haunt of Bond creator Ian Fleming and is said to have provided the inspiration for the secret agent's iconic "shaken, not stirred" martini. Even if you're not a Bond fan, this gorgeous cocktail with seasonal flavors of pomegranate and orange is a showstopper for your upcoming holiday festivities.
~ EVENSONG MARTINI ~
In a chilled glass combine 3 drops bitters, 1/4 cup ice-cold vodka (pop the bottle in the freezer an hour before using), 1 Tbsp Pomegranate Tea-Infused Vodka and 1 tsp Solerno blood orange liqueur. Garnish with an orange twist. Serves 1.
POMEGRANATE TEA-INFUSED VODKA
Combine 1 cup of vodka and 1 Tbsp loose pomegranate tea(we like Republic of Tea brand) in a glass or an infuser such as the Incanter; stir or shake well. Let stand at room temperature 2 hours. If using a glass, strain through a cheesecloth-lined sieve into a clean container. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
