Personally, we wouldn't shake a martini. But then again, we're not James Bond, and even though he's fictional, he's meant to be much sleeker, more sophisticated and slightly more dangerous than us, so we'll let him have his way.

American Bar's head bartender Erik Lorincz has been advising the drinks team on the Bond films for years, and this year he's created the official Bond cocktail, entitled simply Spectre, to accompany the recent release of Daniel Craig's last film in the franchise. Learn to make it below.
