Cocktails and nightclub website SloshSpot.com has compiled a list of the best drinks and cocktails named after movies.
Here are a few examples from their list:
1 oz Southern Comfort® peach liqueur
1 oz amaretto almond liqueur
1 oz sweet and sour mix
1 oz Sprite® soda
Mix all ingredients, and serve in an old-fashioned glass with ice.
1-2 inch Vanilla Vodka
Limeade to taste
Fill glass with ice, add vanilla vodka, fill glass with limeade and add a wedge of lime and/or sprig of mint for a little color, stir gently & enjoy!
I’m sure you’re as shocked as I am that almost all the drinks they list are named after movies about men. The lone exception is Eyes Wide Shut, which co-stars Nicole Kidman, and the drink of the same name is summarized as "basically mix a bunch of s–t you normally don’t drink into one, and consume."
Reading through their list, I wondered, who actually goes into a bar and asks for a "Wayne’s World?" Then I wondered — what if we created cocktails named after lesbian movies?
With Lori’s help (since I don’t really drink), I came up with a few ideas.
7 oz champagne
1 oz MonaVie® juice with Acai
1 oz parental disapproval
Serve in champagne flute.
4 oz. Mount Gay Premium White® rum
10 oz blue Gatorade®
2 oz betrayal
Shake well, and serve in a sports bottle.
3 parts vodka
3 parts Mestro Dobel Diamond® Tequila
3 parts Australian White Rum
3 parts Gin
5 parts lemon juice
6 parts Sweet ‘n Sour
4 parts girl power
Dash of criminal activity
Mix ingredients in glass over ice, stir, garnish with a short skirt, and serve.
OK, now it’s your turn — leave your Lesbian Movie Cocktail recipes in the comments!
