Rating
Cocktails of the Movies is the perfect book for gathering friends and making the fabulous mixed drinks that are featured in your favorite films. From Groundhog Day it's Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks with a Twist; from A Clockwork Orange, a Moloko Plus. Imbibe a White Russian with the Dude, Jeff Bridges, from The Big Lebowski, or kick back and savor some Mississippi Punch with Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. As interest in mixology and drinks from past decades soars, this journey through 64 great cocktails of the silver screen will thrill movie buffs and provide inspiration for anyone looking to pair up an occasion with a fine beverage. Featuring easy-to-follow recipes and original illustrations of cinema's greatest stars and movies, this book serves up fascinating trivia about the genesis of each drink and its role within each film's plot. In addition, it covers all the basics of preparing, garnishing and serving cocktails in style. No matter what your taste in movies or liquor, there's something for everyone-including a Virgin Pina Colada (Kurt Russell, Deathproof) and the Arnold Palmer (Will Ferrell's optionally alcoholic cooler in The Other Guys)-in this original collection.
