Shaken: How to mix the perfect… Pussy Galore

There’s still time to buy the James Bond fan in your life the perfect present for Christmas: Shaken: Drinking with James Bond and Ian Fleming.  With recipes devised by the mixologists at award-winning bar, Swift in London’s West End, and with extracts from the original novels, this book is the perfect blend of delicious drinks, Fleming facts, Bond trivia and thrilling quotes.  It is a fantastic cocktail book which pulls together the characters and themes of the James Bond stories to create new original cocktail recipes for fans to enjoy – the perfect gift for the party season.

This week we’re taking a sneak peek at the recipe for the Pussy Galore cocktail.  Just like her drink, this outrageously named, acrobat, cat-burglar, gang leader, means business.  Hired by Goldfinger to help him rob Fort Knox, Pussy Galore is pitted against Bond but his charms soon win her round as an ally for the forces of good.

”Gosh, what a crew! Even the Mafia had come in. How had Goldfinger persuaded them all to come? And who in heaven’s name was Miss Pussy Galore?’ – Goldfinger

Goldfinger said, ‘Good afternoon, Miss Galore. We have just been through the formality of introductions. The agenda is before you, together with the fifteen-thousand-dollar gold bar I asked you to accept to meet the expense and inconvenience of attending this meeting.’

Miss Galore reached for her parcel and opened it. She weighed the gleaming yellow brick in her hand. She gave Goldfinger a direct, suspicious look. ‘All the way through?’

‘All the way through.” – Goldfinger
