T is for Tiffany Cocktail
A Bondgirl inspired cocktail, this one from Diamonds Are Forever. In this edition Bond (Sean Connery) falls in love with Tiffany Case, a diamond smuggler, part of a smuggling ring from Sierra Leone.
Based on the scene where Bond meets Tiffany in an Amsterdam house. As Bond enters the room Tiffany disappears to the bedroom to put some clothes on. James asked if there is a Mr Case and Tiffany replies “The T is for Tiffany”. Bond pours himself a scotch from the drinks trolley.
As Tiffany appears again from the bedroom now “dressed” but James noticed she is now brunette and was blonde before. However bond only cares if the cuffs match the collar.
Combining Dutch jenever for the location, Scottish whisky for the Scottish Bond and South African redbush tea for Tiffany, sums up this scene and even has a bitter aftertaste as James falls for the tricks of Miss Case.
