Booktails: Cocktails from Literature

"Shaken, not stirred" is synonymous with James Bond, but do you actually know what cocktail he was referring to?

Asylum blog has compiled a list of classic drinks associated with literature and how to make 'em. For example:

2. Americano
"Casino Royale"
While the Vesper martini overshadowed other drinks in the novel and became even more famous in the movie, this was the first cocktail that readers ever heard James Bond order. Originally called the Milano-Torino in Milan, Italy, during the 1860s, it was renamed for its popularity with American tourists during Prohibition.

Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes.
Pour in 1 ounce Campari and 1 ounce sweet vermouth.
Top off with club soda.
Garnish with lemon twist or orange slice.
