The Vesper- TravelingforTaverns.com 007 Favorite at Relish in Breckenridge

Relish in Breckenridge is a fantastic spot for James Bond’s drink and locally inspired meals. Created by Ian Fleming, the Vesper was introduced in the 1953 novel Casino Royale by 007 agent James Bond and revisited in the 2006 film Casino Royale.  The book and the film are very similar with the intro of this inspired cocktail. In the film, Bond is playing poker, he orders a champagne changes his mind and goes onto name the ingredients of his new cocktail.  The other poker players seem to agree its a tasty drink and proceed to order also.  Throughout the film Bond makes comparisons to the cocktail he names “Vesper” and his love interest Vesper Lynd who he named the drink after. Drink variations : The original from the novel and book – “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.” Web source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bond_(character) Kina Lillet has been reformulated since 1953. ...

The Cala Inn – Dillon, CO

The Cala Inn – Dillon, CO

The Cala Inn near Keystone, CO is one of those taverns that’s populated by locals and you can get the low down on just about everything going on in Summit.  The Cala considers itself a Celtic Inn and has the menu to match. Food and drink are as diverse as the crowd with the largest selection of Single Malt Scotch and Irish whiskey in Summit County.  Besides having a tasty menu, the Cala is a great hideaway from the busier bars on Route 6. If you visit, you’ll most likely get one of three great bartenders, Kathleen, Brandon or Christina.  They all have their specialty, but I’ll leave that for you to discover. Plenty of local knowledge in this bar; just ask because almost everyone around you most likely lives within a mile or two.  Check it out on Foursquare– guess who’s the mayor? Tips – Daily Specials, Best pub chips ever. If you show up durning dinnertime (5-7 pm), expect families.  Hit the deck on a sunny day. Great...

Traveling for Taverns – Waterfall spotting on I-70

Traveling for Taverns – Waterfall spotting on I-70

Idaho Springs, CO tends to be a quick stop for fuel or a bite to eat on the way up to the mountains, but the Vintage Moose Tavern warrants a bit more time.  The Vintage Moose is a recently renovated bar with great views of the Idaho Springs’ waterfall.  Perfect for a few beers or a cocktail while soaking up the local flavor.If you’re stopping in during the day, ask for Kenny; he owns the place and has plenty to talk about.  He’ll give you the info on everyone sitting in the bar, and then join you for a PBR.  Kenny’s friendliness is also part of his vision. He built a patio behind the main bar area – also waterfall view – with only one table for the sole purpose of drinking and facilitating conversation. The decor of the Vintage Moose is also worth the stop.  Kenny’s wife owns The Wild Grape, a local gift shop, so she used her expertise to decorate the tavern.  It’s a cozy locals’ spot with a bit of grit – hunting...
