Juni James Bond empfiehlt: Der Gin Martini aus "Casino Royale" Gin, Wodka und Lillet Blanc in einen Cocktailshaker geben und mit reichlich Eis. Vesper, oft auch The Vesper, ist ein Cocktail aus Gin, Wodka, und Kina Lillet. Es handelt sich um eine Variante des Martinis und schmeckt aufgrund des Kina Lillet leicht bitter. Der Autor Ian Fleming erfand den Cocktail für seine Romanfigur James Bond, der ihn im erschienenen Roman Casino Royale bestellt. Der Vesper ist ein stilvoller Cocktail aus Gin, Vodka und Lillet. Seinen Ursprung findet der Vesper im James Bond Film „Casino Royale“, wo er nach der Figur.
M informs him the same organisation behind Le Chiffre had kidnapped Vesper's lover and threatened to kill him unless she became a double agent.
During the torture with Le Chiffre, Vesper made a deal: Bond discovers a text message left for him by Vesper with White's name and phone number.
At his estate in Lake Como , White receives a phone call from Bond. As he asks for the caller's identity, Bond shoots him in the leg, then introduces himself: The cameo was cut out of the in-flight versions shown on British Airways ' in-flight entertainment systems, and the Virgin Atlantic aircraft Branson supplied had its tail fin bearing the company logo obscured.
Casino Royale had been produced as a television episode and a satirical film. He explained, "the draft that was there was very faithful to the book and there was a confession, so in the original draft the character confessed and killed herself.
She then sent Bond to chase after the villains; Bond chased the villains into the house. I don't know why but I thought that Vesper had to be in the sinking house and Bond has to want to kill her and then try and save her.
Director Quentin Tarantino expressed interest in directing an adaptation of Casino Royale ,  but Eon were not interested.
He claims to have worked behind the scenes with the Fleming family, and believed this was the reason why filmmakers finally went ahead with Casino Royale.
In February , Martin Campbell was announced as the film's director. Eon believed that they had relied too heavily on CGI effects in the more recent films, particularly Die Another Day , and were keen to accomplish the stunts in Casino Royale "the old fashioned way".
Pierce Brosnan had signed a deal for four films when he was cast in the role of James Bond. This was fulfilled with the production of Die Another Day in At this stage, Brosnan was approaching his 50th birthday.
Brosnan kept in mind fans and critics were not happy with Roger Moore playing Bond until he was 58 and speculation began that the producers were seeking to replace Brosnan with a younger actor.
At one point, producer Michael G. Wilson claimed there was a list of over names being considered for his replacement. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli had assured him he would get the role of Bond, and Matthew Vaughn told reporters MGM offered him the opportunity to direct the new film, but Eon Productions at that point had not approached either of them.
Craig read all of Fleming's novels to prepare for the part, and cited Mossad and British Secret Service agents who served as advisors on the set of Munich as inspiring because, "Bond has just come out of the service and he's a killer.
These guys walk into a room and very subtly they check the perimeters for an exit. That's the sort of thing I wanted.
Throughout the entire production period, Internet campaigns such as "danielcraigisnotbond. The next important casting was that of the lead Bond girl , Vesper Lynd.
Principal photography for Casino Royale commenced on 3 January and concluded on 20 July The film was primarily shot at Barrandov Studios in Prague, with additional location shooting in the Bahamas , Italy and the United Kingdom.
The shoot concluded at Pinewood Studios. However, Eon Productions encountered problems in securing film locations in South Africa. In September , Martin Campbell and director of photography Phil Meheux were scouting Paradise Island in the Bahamas as a possible location for the film.
In addition to the extensive location filming, studio work including choreography and stunt co-ordination practice was performed at the Barrandov Studios in Prague, and at Pinewood Studios, where the film used several stages, the paddock tank and the Stage.
Further shooting in the UK was scheduled for Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, the cricket pavilion at Eton College although that scene was cut from the completed movie and the Millbrook Vehicle Proving Ground in Bedfordshire.
After Prague, the production moved to the Bahamas. Several locations around New Providence were used for filming during February and March, particularly on Paradise Island.
Other scenes in the latter half of the film were shot in late May and early June at the Villa del Balbianello on the shores of Lake Como.
A recreation of the Body Worlds exhibit provided a setting for one scene in the film. The exhibition's developer and promoter, German anatomist Gunther von Hagens , also has a cameo appearance in the film,  although only his trademark hat is actually visible on screen.
In designing the credit sequence for the film, graphic designer Daniel Kleinman was inspired by the cover of the British first edition of Casino Royale , which featured Ian Fleming's original design of a playing card bordered by eight red hearts dripping with blood.
Kleinman said, "The hearts not only represent cards but the tribulations of Bond's love story. So I took that as inspiration to use playing card graphics in different ways in the titles," like a club representing a puff of gun smoke, and slashed arteries spurting thousands of tiny hearts.
Kleinman decided not to use the female silhouettes commonly seen throughout the Bond title sequences, considering that the women did not fit with both the film's spirit and the storyline following Bond falling in love.
For the rest of the film, Chris Corbould , the special effects and miniature effects supervisor, returned to a more realistic style of film making and significantly reduced digital effects.
According to Corbould, "CGI is a great tool and can be very useful, but I will fight to the tooth and nail to do something for real.
It's the best way to go". First on the schedule were the scenes on the Madagascar building site, shot in the Bahamas on the site of a derelict hotel which Michael G.
The stunt team built a model and put forward several ways in which the digger could conceivably take out the concrete, including taking out the pillar underneath.
A section of the concrete wall was removed to fit the digger and reinforced with steel. The modified aircraft had the outboard engines replaced by external fuel tanks, while the inboard engines were replaced by a mock-up pair of engines on each inboard pylon.
The cockpit profile was altered to make the look like a prototype of an advanced airliner. The sinking of the Venetian house at the climax of the film featured the largest rig ever built for a Bond film.
The rig, weighing some 90 tons, incorporated electronics with hydraulic valves which were closely controlled by computer because of the dynamic movement within the system on its two axes.
The same computer system also controlled the exterior model, which the effects team had built to one-third scale in order to film the building eventually collapsing into the Venetian canal.
The model elevator within the rig could be immersed in 19 feet 5. The soundtrack of Casino Royale , released by Sony Classical Records on 14 November , featured music composed by veteran composer David Arnold , his fourth soundtrack for the Bond film series, while Nicholas Dodd orchestrated and conducted the score.
The classic theme only plays during the end credits to signal the climax of his character arc. Only two days following the premiere, unlicensed copies appeared for sale in London.
Craig himself was offered such a DVD while walking anonymously through the streets of Beijing wearing a hat and glasses to avoid being identified.
In January , Casino Royale became the first Bond film ever to be shown in mainland Chinese cinemas. The Chinese version was edited before release, with the reference to the Cold War re-dubbed and new dialogue added during the poker scene explaining the process of Texas hold 'em , as the game is less familiar in China this addition is reminiscent of dialogue that was added to the American TV adaptation to explain the rules of baccarat , the game featured in the original book.
Casino Royale was the 4th highest-grossing film of , and was the highest-grossing instalment of the James Bond series until Skyfall surpassed it in November As well as features present from the release, the collector's edition contains an audio commentary , deleted scenes, featurettes and a storyboard-to-film comparison.
Casino Royale was released a third time on Blu-ray in with DTS audio and deleted scenes, but with less special features than the edition.
In the United States, two fight scenes were censored to achieve a PG rating: The German edit of the film cuts a sequence where the bomb-planter at the airport breaks a man's neck, instead replacing it with an alternative take.
The mainland Chinese cut of the film also trims the torture scene and the stairway fight, as well as a shot of Bond cleaning his wound at the hotel, and a boat scene.
Critics responded with praise to the film, in particular to Craig's performance and credibility. During production, Craig had been subject to debate by the media and the public, as he did not appear to fit Ian Fleming's original portrait of the character as tall, dark and suave.
The Times compared Craig's portrayal of the character to that of Timothy Dalton , and praised the action as "edgy",  with another reviewer citing in particular the action sequence involving the cranes in Madagascar.
The film was similarly well received in North America. MSNBC gave the movie a perfect 5 star rating. The site's critical consensus reads, " Casino Royale disposes of the silliness and gadgetry that plagued recent James Bond outings, and Daniel Craig delivers what fans and critics have been waiting for: This is a screwed-up Bond, a rogue Bond, a bounder, a scrapper and, in the movie's astoundingly bleak coda, an openhearted lover.
Vicky Allan of the Sunday Herald noted Bond himself, and not his love interests, was sexually objectified in this film.
A moment where he rises from the sea is reminiscent of Ursula Andress in Dr. No ; he feels "skewered" by Vesper Lynd's criticism of him; "and though it would be almost unthinkable now have a female character in a mainstream film stripped naked and threatened with genital mutilation, that is exactly what happens to Bond in [the film].
Furthermore, I consider Daniel Craig to be the most effective and appealing of the six actors who have played , and that includes even Sean Connery.
Roger Moore wrote, "Daniel Craig impressed me so greatly in his debut outing, Casino Royale , by introducing a more gritty, unrefined edge to the character that I thought Sean [Connery] might just have to move over.
Craig's interpretation was like nothing we'd seen on screen before; Jimmy Bond was earning his stripes and making mistakes.
It was intriguing to see him being castigated by M, just like a naughty schoolboy would be by his headmaster. The script showed him as a vulnerable, troubled, and flawed character.
Quite the opposite to my Bond! Craig was, and is, very much the Bond Ian Fleming had described in the books — a ruthless killing machine.
It was a Bond that the public wanted. However, the film met with mixed reactions from other critics. Rob Gonsalves of eFilmCritic.
Though American radio personality Michael Medved gave the film three stars out of four, describing it as "intriguing, audacious and very original In December , Casino Royale was named the best film of the year by viewers of Film The film appeared on many critics' top ten lists of the best films of From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

This is my new fav. Hard to find Lillet. Finally found it here in Syracuse. Can't wait to have another. I actually loved the fact in the latest version that he requests "Gordon's" gin, not some crazy, over priced, trendy brand Although, Hendricks IS quite lovely!
I've gone to several local-ish bars and pubs and ordered this one. Probably, the best one was one that I got while I was in downtown San Diego, CA where the bartender was a big martini drinker and made it sooo damned perfectly.
I believed he used sweet vermouth at the first sample, then again with dry. Both of them were great!
This drink will be in heavy rotation with my other favorite drinks, including vodka gimlets and rum, scotch and Coke a Beatle drink.
Finally got the lillet and put it all together. Spectacular, no, but worth having again. Part of it of course, is the Bond connection.
What man doesn't want to have a little James Bond in him? It's important to remember the difference in ABV of the spirits now compared to I make Vesper's at my bar using Tanqueray, Stolichnaya , and Lillet with a tiny pinch of quinine powder.
Love the peppery quality of your conconction Try a real one - and don't suffer any other Vermouth If you can't find Cocchi or, indeed Lillet you can get both at thewhiskyexchange.
Love this drink, one of my favourite cocktails. Can't handle too many of them though as it's a real 'blow your head off but easy to drink at the same time' kind of drink.
I use Absolute and Bombay simply because it's always in the drinks' cabinet. Plus I like the extra spice you get with the Bombay, makes up for what the Lillet Blanc lacks.
Works a treat, for my tastes anyway. I tried the Vesper at a bar here in Las Vegas. The bar is called "Vesper Bar" in the Cosmopolitan.
The Vesper is their signature drink. I'm not sure what exactly they mixed in it, but wow was it good. Very smooth with a sweetness and a lemon after taste.
Vesper martini is unquestionably the ultimate connoisseur's martini. Always use proof Vodka and at least 94 proof Gin.
I just ordered a bottle of Lillet and I can't wait to try my first Vesper martini. Great notes about a great drink! I just completed an illustration for this drink and posted it on my blog.
It is the Vesper Grey a slight wist on the James Bond classic! Please check it out! I enjoy this drink.
However, I substitute the Gordon's for Bombay Sapphire. The drink must have either a splash of tonic or additional quinine powder; makes them interact better and bridges the favour from alcohol to the lemon zest finish.
Lillet really must be used You Should use Aperitivo Cocchi Americano It's the most credible alternative to the long discontinued Kina Lillet due to its high levels of cinchona, the fiercely bitter bark used to make quinine.

We did Bombay Sapphire Gin, Vodka, and dry vermouth. This drink is sinful, taste great, but I'm surely gonna try it next time Kina Lillet.
Daniel McDermot on 05 July, - Permalink reply. I first tried mixing a Vesper after reading Casino Royale just before the film came out.
That said Tanqueray works very well also. Do not ruin with a cheap vodka either, although Absolute is acceptable. However, without the Lillet it is pointless to put the effort into the gin or vodka.
