As Summer 2012 is in full swing, we’re sharing a few cocktials to start your summer from BourbonBlog.com‘s Chef/Mixologist Stephen Dennison.

The first is a cross between the Vesper and Vodka Gimlet celebrating the Bond Girl. Drink it all summer as you get ready for the release of Skyfall.

We left out the Heineken.
