James Bond, Vodka Martini and Vesper

No matter if it's original Bond Sean Connery or current leading man Daniel Craig, 007 always drinks with style. For years, Britain's top secret agent preferred to sip Vodka Martinis-"shaken, not stirred," of course-but we were happy to see Bond go back to his roots in the 2006 Casino Royale. Craig orders "three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice and add a thin slice of lemon peel." This, of course, is the classic Vesper, which was the agent's first signature order in the 1953 novel that introduced him.

Who can forget James Bond's "shaken, not stirred" Martini, Don Draper's trusty Old Fashioned or Carrie Bradshaw's fruity Cosmo?

An onscreen cocktail may be not only memorable, but also a key part of a character's identity. (Just try imaging The Big Lebowski's The Dude sipping something other than a White Russian. It doesn't work.) So, it should come as no surprise that some of the most famous and popular drinks in mixological history are tied to a fictional character.

We watched a range of TV shows and movies to come up with our list of the seven top on-screen drinkers and their signature tipples. So turn on the TV (or pull up YouTube or Netflix) and mix up some drinks-it's the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. Cheers!
