“Can we have a drink now?” the actor asked as host Jimmy Fallon praised him for reinvigorating the spy franchise on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday.
Craig had just completed a speed round of memories for each of his films, including his Bond swan song, “No Time to Die,” out now.
Fallon quickly brought up two of Bond’s signature drinks from below his desk and toasted the actor: “I’d be be honored to share a cheers, a martini with you. Mr. Bond, Mr. Craig, thank you for everything.”
The character indulged in 27 martinis in 23 films before “Spectre,” and Craig’s Bond had nine of them, The Drinks Business reported in 2015.
Over the years, however, Bond has also been known to imbibe beer, wine and Champagne too, Bon Appetit reported.
But nothing is quite as iconic as the cocktail he prefers “shaken, not stirred.”
