Happy Birthday Daniel Craig! [“Vodka Martini. Shaken, Not Stirred”]

“There is strong and consistent evidence that James Bond has a chronic alcohol consumption problem at the ‘severe’ end of the spectrum. He should seek professional help and try to find other strategies for managing occupational stress.”

Medical Journal of Australia (December 2018)

“Shaken, not stirred” is a catchphrase of Ian Fleming’s fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond and describes his preference for the preparation of his martini cocktails.

In the film adaptations of Fleming’s novels, the phrase is first uttered by the villain, Dr. Julius No, when he offers the drink in Dr. No (1962), and it is not uttered by Bond himself (played by Sean Connery) until Goldfinger (1964).

It is used in numerous Bond films thereafter with the notable exceptions of You Only Live Twice (1967), in which the drink is wrongly offered as “stirred, not shaken”, to Bond’s response “that’s right”.

In Casino Royale (2006), Bond, after losing millions of dollars in a game of poker, is asked if he wants his martini shaken or stirred and snaps:

“Do I look like I give a damn?”
