We all have our own favourite drinks that we love. Some of the team here like a Gin and Tonic, while the other’s prefer a strong vodka and coke. When it comes to our fictional movie characters, they too have their own preferred taste which like us which they become naturally associated with. We thought we’d take a look at some of the most iconic movie drinks from some of the world’s biggest films - and yes, of course we have listed 007...
Tom Cruise’s classic film Cocktail is a perfect Friday night choice. You can sit back, feel like you’re in an exotic destination and have plenty of cocktail inspiration throughout. One of the signature drinks that Cruise made was the ‘cocktail’ which was made up of vodka, an egg, Bloody Mary Mix and topped off with a cold beer. It’s also a drink that’s made famous in the film Red Eye and is linked with being the perfect hangover cure. With those ingredients we are not so sure...
Sex and the City
Without doubt, the Sex and the City girls made the Cosmo cocktail one of the greatest drinks of all time. Throughout the series and films they constantly consume these fruity cocktails which are made up of vodka, orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and lime cordial.
Similar to Bill Murray’s character, Phil Connors, we are also stuck in a time warp reliving his drink order every single day. We were quick to realise that his favourite tipple was a Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks with a Twist, followed by the infamous words “It always makes me think of Rome, the way the sun hits the buildings in the afternoon”. In actual facts, his drink choice is very unpopular with most people only ordering it within a drink such as a martini as it’s quite dry.
James Bond is without doubt one of the most iconic male cocktail drinkers in film history. Throughout the years, many actors have taken on this role, sprouting out the classic line ‘Shaken not stirred’. And although we associate the Vodka Martini with Bond, his first true drink was the Vesper Martini which he made famous. It’s made up of gin, vodka and vermouth and “once you’ve tasted it, that’s all you want to drink”.
