In Quantum of Solace Bond’s life is tumultuous. It has been shaken by the loss of Vesper but his resolve has not been stirred.
This drink embodies the delicate balance between his emotional turmoil and his need for retribution. The smoothness of Smirnoff Black, a splash of lonely bitters and the brilliant ruby red of a blood orange, combine to create the perfect Quantum of Solace. A cocktail of no small measure.
