Daniel Craig Says 007's Martinis Left Him 'On the Floor'

Call it sipping into character.

Daniel Craig, the current James Bond, says not only has he tried a Vesper martini – the drink 007 invented in Casino Royale – but he's done a taste test for the best recipe.

"I've tried about 10 of them," Craig, 40, tells London's Time Out in its Oct. 23 issue. "They're knockout. We did a proper taste test: full measure of gin, full measure of vodka and then another liqueur on top of it. I ended up on the floor."

When he's off duty, the actor says he prefers vodka martinis with an olive. Shaken or stirred? "I don't know who drinks stirred cocktails anymore. I like them ice, ice, ice cold, so you have to shake them up."
