The Belvedere Vodka-007 Spectre pre-screening  last evening in Hollywood proved to be an exciting event.
Certainly we thought so.  Spectre was a fast moving film with dazzling scenes of Mexico City, London, Rome and Tangiers that made it an exciting traveling adventure.
Most enjoyable was the cocktail reception that opened the event at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood.
Here we had the opportunity to taste some of the Belvedere Vodka drinks presented that evening.
First the Belvedere 007 Martini with two oz. of vodka, .25 of dry vermouth and of course shaken, not stirred.
Our favorite was the Belvedere Spectre 007 Martini which included two oz. of vodka, .25 of dry vermouth, .15 oz of Sicilian Green Olive Brine and one Sicilian Green olive.
A taller, mellow drink in a highball glass called Belvedere Double O included .75 oz of vodka, .75 French Dry Vermouth, .l5 oz. Italian Sweet Vermouth and topped with sparkling lemonade and garnished with an orange slice and olive.
These delights were accompanied by a wonderful selection of appetizers.
As for those in attendance, a chic group of smartly attired and handsome young men and women that offered opportunities for admiring people watching.
After 007 and his beautiful companion drove off into the sunset those that wished to extend the evening did so at nearby Warwick on Sunset Blvd. to enjoy another Belvedere Vodka cocktail.
