Last Friday was AndressFest’16, my eleventh annual festival celebrating both of the important attributes of Ursula Andress.

Yes, it’s the time of year when we celebrate both her movies and her life.

As usual, the snacks for AndressFesst’16 were a visual celebration of everything that made her the woman we all know and love.

Of course some men knew her and loved her more than others. Or at least more often. If you limited yourself to only watching the films of actors and directors who had at some point banged Ursula, you’d still be able to watch pretty much every major motion picture of the last fifty years. And quite a few of the minor ones.

Still, Andress’Fest isn’t about men. It’s about a very singular woman. As is traditional, we celebrated AndressFest’16 with another new cocktail invented in her honour.

The Naughty Ursula

1 part ginger-infused American Honey or similar
1 part lemongrass-infused vodka
A tiny dash of maple syrup

Shake the first two ingredients vigorously in an ice-filled cocktail shaker, then strain into a martini glass and add the syrup. Garnish with a piece of glace ginger.

It was a complicated process creating this cocktail, but a complicated woman like Ursula deserves no less.
