The last time I ‘wrote about’ Cocktail, I used it as an excuse to list my favourite classic cocktails along with the films in which they star. Actually I didn’t say much about the Tom Cruise film at all.
Check out Cocktail and my favourite cocktails here.
Since then, I’ve been busy dreaming up my own cocktail creations, taking inspiration from the world of movies.
And here are ten of them:
A champagne cocktail made with the usual sugar cube, angostura biters and brandy, and also a big dollup of marmalade.
Bourbon, sweet vermouth and bitters mixed in a hot water bottle.
- 3. Titanic
Gin & (ti)tonic served with novelty cruiser and iceberg ice-cubes.
- 4. Avatar
Gin and… blue Curacao of course.
A mulled wine with bite (made with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, a chilli, oranges, lemons, brandy, sugar – and a bottle of Chianti of course).
- 7. Milk
Cheap white wine, served warm.
A magical twist on the classic flaming Sambuca and coffee beans combo. I can’t tell you more than that or I’ll turn into a toad.
- 10. Any Old Port!
Cocktail (see how I’ve avoided talking about this film again) is showing today 25th September on Channel 4 at 11.15pm
