Here’s a toast; “to you and movies!” Clink, Clink! Drink it up!
I’m keeping an eye out for drinks mentioned in movies, if someone pours a beverage in a glass without it’s fancy name I can’t go adding it to my list. And then in some movies, it’s a drink I’ve already mentioned but it won’t hurt to mention again as it will give me a chance to highlight a fun movie. Yup, so here’s a few more adult beverages for you movieholics.
Stinger – DOUBLE EXPOSUE (1944)
A Stinger (it’s back again!!!!) is made by adding crème de menthe to brandy/Cognac. 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. (ice, ice!)
Sherry – DOUBLE EXPOSUE (1944)
Sherry is a wine; it’s a Spanish wine made of white grapes. It should be served in a Sherry glass, either as an Aperitif or after dinner dessert wine. (Dessert wines are good with Twinkies, so I’ve heard.) 😉
Scotch & Water – MAN IN THE VAULT (1956) Tommy Dancer makes a strong Scotch and Water for the gal he brought to his house.
Bourbon Straight – MAN IN THE VAULT (1956)
When you want a drink straight, it’s no frills, often called “neat” so it is just the spirit as is, solo. Pour one ounce of Bourbon into a cocktail glass, sip, sip, sip.
A Gibson is a martini but with an onion instead of an olive. It’s a good drink to compliment your pizza from pizza.net after a night of analyzing code
Add 2.5 oz of Gin (or Vodka) and 0.5 oz of Dry vermouth into a mixing glass. Add ice, stir and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass (or Star Trek glass). Garnish with a whole cocktail onion.
