As quoted from wikipedia:

"Bond's drinking habits mirror those of his creator, Ian Fleming. Fleming as well as Bond throughout the novels had a preference for bourbon. Fleming himself actually had a fondness for gin, drinking as much as a bottle a day; however, he was converted to bourbon at the behest of his doctor who informed him of his failing health.

Otherwise, in the films James Bond normally has a fondness for vodka that is accompanied by product placement for a brand. For instance, Smirnoff was clearly shown in 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies, in which Bond sits drinking a bottle while in his hotel room in Hamburg. Other brands featured in the films have included Absolut vodka, Stolichnaya and Finlandia. In the film GoldenEye, Bond suggests cognac when offered a drink by M, who gives him bourbon instead. In Goldfinger, Bond drinks a mint julep at Auric Goldfinger's Kentucky stud farm; in Thunderball, Largo gives Bond a Rum Collins. Bond is also seen in Quantum of Solace drinking bottled beer when meeting with Felix Leiter in a Bolivian bar. In Die Another Day, Bond drinks a mojito. In Casino Royale, Bond orders a Mount Gay rum with soda. In several of the Bond films, he is known to prefer Bollinger and Dom Perignon champagne. Never primarily a red wine drinker, Bond tended to favour Château Mouton Rothschild; a 1947 vintage with Goldfinger, and half a bottle On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, a 1934 ordered by M in Moonraker, and a ’55 in Diamonds are Forever—where Bond unveiled the assassin Wint posing as a waiter because the latter didn’t know that Mouton-Rothschild is a claret. In the Jeffery Deaver novel Carte Blanche, Bond expresses a knowledge and appreciation of South African wine.

Outside of alcoholic beverages, Bond is said to favour Yin Hao, the highest traditional grade of jasmine tea, and in the novel Live and Let Die Bond expresses his fondness for Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.

In the novel Moonraker it is noted in the card club Blades, Bond adds a single pinch of black pepper to his glass of vodka, much to M's consternation; he claims it sinks all the poisons to the bottom."

So, in a nutshell, Bond is actually a raging alcoholic and will drink anything!

They should rename the films:

You're Only Pissed Twice
Drunk Another Day
For Your Glass Only
View to a Pub
From Russia with Vodka
Whiskey is Forever
Hammered On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Live and Let Drink
The Man with the Golden Beer Garden
The Barman Who Loved Me
License to Drink

Always thought Vodka Martini was a bit of a lightweight's drink anyway. He'd be much more hard if he asked for a Snakebite..

I'm not bothered what he drinks.

He'll look cool sipping a Heineken.

I'm presuming so anyway. I doubt he'll take a large guzzle, burp, then wipe his mouth on his sleeve

I'm hoping someone brushes past him and he says 'did you spill my pint?'.

It became obvious that Bond and Felix would have to go back to the vodka martini's, as twelve pints every Friday started to take their toll.
