A few signature cocktails based on two anticipated films have been a long time coming to this blog. I’ll be posting them in a few days and am soon headed to check out an advanced screening of Joe Swanberg’s comedy “Drinking Buddies,” starring Olivia Wilde and Ron Livingston. The film is about two best friends who work at a brewery and could be perfect for each other if they pursued something more -- except for the fact they they are both in relationships -- one that is headed for marriage.
Needless to say, the theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme will centered on alcohol: Mixology.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, the most memorable cocktails that you’ve seen people drinking in a movie. You don’t have to be a mixology specialist by remembering the ingredients..... the type/name of the cocktail will do just fine! Here are my selections for this week’s Mixology theme.
The Mojito - As seen in “Bad Boys II”
Syd brings two glasses of Bacardi Mojitos over to Johnny Tapia during their meeting about money laundering for his ecstasy operation.
Scotch and Soda - As seen in “Waiting to Exhale”
Following a nasty court battle, Bernadine orders another scotch and soda after a named James offers her a second drink at the bar where they start to get pretty personal.
The Margarita - As seen in “Sex and the City: The Movie”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but, everyone except Charlotte drank margaritas when they had their first dinner together after Carrie came out of her “Mexicoma.”
Although I remember seeing people drink cocktails in “Skyfall” and “The Great Gatsby,” I have no idea what they were drinking, so while the scenes are memorable -- the actual cocktail was not, apparently.
What are YOUR most memorable cocktails from a movie?
