This week's drink/topic combo is the Martini with James Bond. The drink this week is, of course, the martini, and we suggest making it dry: a splash of dry vermouth and a respectable amount of gin or vodka, depending on your preference. Feel free to mix one up while you listen and enjoy! . . . Responsibly of course.

NSFW - occasional swearing.
