In addition to not being stealthy or daring enough to hang from a moving helicopter, you would have made a terrible James Bond because you have no idea if you like your martinis shaken or stirred. With today's deal from Van Diemens, issue yourself a license to whip up killer cocktails and learn the ins and outs of the craft. Pay $65 (regularly $130) for a 90-minute mixology class -- four cocktail tastings and light snacks included -- at this hip Murray Hill locale with nods from New York Magazine. Exposed brick, rich leather accents, and a tin ceiling serve as the perfect setting for serious cocktail concocting. In addition to a boozy history lesson, you'll pour over bartending basics, like using jiggers and strainers, learning which fresh ingredients give life to libations, and discovering advanced techniques in the realm of molecular drink making. You Only Live Twice and you can drink well while doing so -- should you choose to accept this mixology mission.
