When James Bond is sent to meet up with Kristatos in Risico, he has “been told to look for a man with a heavy mustache who would be sitting by himself drinking an Alexandra.”
Bond thinks that the “creamy, feminine drink” of a “tall-stemmed glass of cream and vodka” is an amusing and clever secret recognition signal.
One thought on “Alexandra”
I thought an Alexandra was made using cognac, crème fraiche, and crème de cacao, but not vodka. Hmm. Vodka might get lost in the other tastes..
