How does James Bond drink his Martini?
(1)  Stirred,  (2)  On the Rocks,  (3)  Dirty,  (4)  Shaken

"Shaken, not stirred" is a catchphrase of Ian Fleming's fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond, and his preference for how he wished his martini prepared. The phrase first appears in the novel Diamonds Are Forever (1956), though Bond does not actually say the line until Dr. No (1958) but says it "shaken and not stirred" instead of "shaken, not stirred." A shaken martini means that the drink is mixed in a cocktail shaker with ice. This is now the more popular way to order a martini, as most cocktails are made with a shaker, but martinis were traditionally stirred. This phrase has become a catchphrase in western popular culture and has appeared in many films and television programs for its cliché value.
