Andrew Whibley’s Ziploc Vesper Cocktail Recipe

Andrew Whibley


Montreal, Q.C.

My not-so-secret guilty pleasure for drinking at home is the pre-batched freezer ziploc vesper. Why? It’s a breeze to whip up. There’s no need for fancy equipment or intricate mixing. It’s a cocktail lover’s dream. And it’s perfect for those lazy evenings when you crave a bar-quality drink without the fuss. I always have some in the freezer.

Ziplock Vesper


  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 2 dashes grapefruit bitters
  • 3 slices lemon zest


Combine gin, vodka, Lillet, bitters, zest and 11⁄2 oz water in a Ziploc bag, seal and transfer to the freezer. When needed, pour into a martini glass.
