Movie Menus: Cocktails Go to the Cinema

Great movies--we'll drink to that!

Some cocktails are closely associated with particular movies. Here are a few fun pairings.

Shh, the Movie's Starting!

Casablanca and Champagne Cocktails

Rick Blaine:  "Here's looking at you, kid."

M*A*S*H and bone-dry martinis

Duke Forrest: "Olives? Where do you think we are?"
Trapper John: "Yeah, but without olives, a martini just doesn't quite make it." (Said as he pulls a jar of cocktail olives from his coat.)

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the Pangalactic Gargleblaster

From the novel: "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy also mentions alcohol. It says that the best drink in existence is the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. It says that the effect of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick."

Casino Royale and the Vesper

Bartender: Shaken or stirred?
Bond: Do I look like I give a damn? 

The Big Lebowski and White Russians

The Dude: "The Dude abides."  (Or in this case, the Dude imbibes.)

    The Matador and Margaritas

    Julian Noble: "Margaritas always taste better in Mexico."
