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