Cocktails – Shaken Not Stirred

Dr Kathryn Harkup’s new book, Licence to Kill, will look at the science behind the silly and not so silly ways to die in the world of 007. Can you kill someone by covering them in gold paint? How worried should Bond be about the laser between his legs? Can you be sucked out of a plane like Goldfinger? Lift the lid on the science behind the world’s favourite secret agent and sample his favourite cocktails along the way.
