Last year I started tracking drinks (alcoholic beverages) featured in old movies; Why? Well, why not!? Check out  Movie Drinks – Part One from last year where I shared 3 drink recipes from three fun movies!

Since then (over a year ago!) I didn’t really come across many more fancy beverages…funny how you start something and then it takes a while to pop up again…But eventually over the rest of the 2015 year…find some special drinks I did! Yea! DRINKS!!!!!!!

Now, let’s have a toast with a few Drinks from the movies! CHEERS!
coyle drinkBoilermaker (Again! This is a popular one!) – FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE (1973) 

A shot of Whiskey and a glass of beer. You drink the whiskey first and then chase it with a beer (A shot and a beer) OR you can mix the shot into the beer and drink together. Gulp!


Shyane DetectScotch & Soda – MICHAEL SHAYNE PRIVATE DETECTIVE (1940)

Keep it simple! Take a highball glass filled with ice (large cubes preferable) and pour in Scotch, then top it off with club soda!




The White Lady – THE GOV’NOR (MISTER HOBO) (1935)

Take two ounces of London dry gin, half ounce of Cointreau, half ounce of lemon juice and 1 egg white. Mix and shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice, then strain into a cocktail glass.

Orange Blossom – THE GOV’NOR (MISTER HOBO) (1935)

Take one and half ounces of London dry gin and one and half ounce of orange juice. Pour both into a cocktail shaker with cracked ice and shake. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve.


touch of larcenyPink Gin – A TOUCH OF LARCENY (1959)

Plymouth Gin and Angostura Bitters are the ingredients. Take a chilled old fashioned glass, add a few drop of the bitters, swirl it around to coat the inside of the glass and dump the bitters that’s left. Next, pour in two ounces of chilled Gin into the glass and garnish with a lemon peel (or lemon slice).



One day I will have a fancy drink party to try all these fancy beverage, but I have a feeling I’ll end the night seeing double!

Let’s all keep watching old movies and give them a toast with one of these drinks! DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE, but watch a movie and drink, it’s much safer! 😀 Yup.  Chin Chin!

Cheers! Let’s have a drink, shall we? Watching old movies, movies set in the 30’s-50’s there’s always some drinking going on. The fellas come home from a hard day and pour themselves a drink. They go out to bars and joke with the bartender and drink down shots. Well I’ve recently watched some movies with interesting drinks I have never tried or never heard of before and one day I would like to drink them. Yup.

Below is a list of some drinks and the movies they were mentioned in, yup. (I’m sharing drink recipes that I’ve found on the internets and checking them in a handy bartender book my guy Dave has, yup.)

StingerKISS THEM FOR ME (1957) Cary Grant Suzy Parker Kiss Them For Me movie

A Stinger is made by adding crème de menthe to brandy/Cognac, you take a mixing glass filled with ice, add the crème de menthe (2/3 ounce) and brandy (1 3/4 ounce), stir and then strain it into a cold cocktail glass. It can also be served on the rocks.



gun runnersBoilermakerTHE GUN RUNNERS (1958)

A shot of Whiskey and a glass of beer. You drink the whiskey first and then chase it with a beer (A shot and a beer) OR you can mix the shot into the beer and drink together.



Pink Lady –  TOPPER (1937) THE DEVIL DIAMOND (1937)

Pink Lady-0007A gin drink and the main ingredients are gin, grenadine and egg white. Though it seems some recipes call for cream instead of egg white but then it’s a Pink Shimmy. It is said apple jack is in the original recipe for a Pink Lady which gave the drink it’s distinct flavor so you mix the gin (1 1/2 ounce), apple jack (3/4 ounce), grenadine (1-2 dashes), and 1 egg white into a shaker with ice, shake vigorously and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a cherry.

As I discover more drinks in movies I will add to this list, so stay tuned!  I do hope to have a day, party or gathering where I can try these drink myself and share them with my friends. Who’s up for a round? Cheers and drink responsibly! Never, EVER Drink And Drive, like they did in those old movie! Stay safe people, stay safe!
