James Bond will swap his trademark Vodka Martini for a beer in the next movie, “Skyfall.”

Current 007 Daniel Craig will order a Heineken instead of his famous favorite cocktail in a scene in the upcoming film after Heineken USA agreed to a deal to be featured in the movie, according to trade magazine Ad Age.

The 44-year-old actor will also appear in character for a TV commercial for the drinks brand, which will air all over the world. He will also appear as the spy on special packs of the beer.

Vodka Martini cocktails have become synonymous with the British secret agent and he is often seen ordering the drink on screen with the famous line “shaken, not stirred.”

The phrase was first uttered in a film by Sean Connery in 1964’s “Goldfinger,” while the first novel Ian Fleming included it in was 1956’s “Diamonds Are Forever,” although Bond does not say the line until 1958’s “Dr. No.”
