I've just watched a Mythbusters programme where they were testing various James Bond stuff. One they tried out was about martini. Is there a difference between a shaken and a stirred martini?
I would have guessed that there wasn't. Then they explained how a shaken martini gets more ice into it. Not just the spirits expert they'd brought in, but the Mythbusters staff could all tell the difference in a blind taste. The shaken martini was more dilute.
I'm very disappointed in James Bond going for the watered-down shaken martini. What a flipping wimp. You can probably guess which I would prefer.
