Hello everyone! Claire here with another installment of my series of food inspired by a movie. Today I will share a recipe for a cocktail of tequila I like to call “The Violet Hour”, inspired by the movie Girl Power .
Girl Power , if you have not seen is a fantastic film, following the rise of Melanie Griffith secretary Jersey to Manhattan business. Sigourney Weaver is the villain, Harrison Ford is the love interest, 80 Alec Baldwin plays his ex skeevy, Carly Simon ballads feminists hold it all together, and has the makeover of a lifetime. It is one of my favorite, favorite movies, especially because it is to ’80. Hair, shoulder pads, technology, his hair is perfection.
Inspired by that time in the bar (tequila shots receiving the frame go) I created this drink smoky, precious to share with you today. The Violet Hour is based tequila with a hint of cream viollete. It sounds weird-floral and tequila, but it is a delicious combination. So, like Melanie Griffith and change your tennis shoes for swollen heels, leaving your network aqua, and live to fight against that glass ceiling!
The Violet Hour
- 2 oz tequila white
- ½ Oz. Violette cream
- ½ Oz. Grand Marnier
- 3 angostura dashes
- orange flamed twist
During much ice, combine the tequila , Violette cream, Grand Marnier, and bitters in a large glass. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds, then strain into a glass on a large ice cube. Take a small orange peel, light a match and run under and above the orange to release oils, and place it on the glass. Enjoy!
Not only is this delicious cocktail, but also has quite the theatrical element with lighting orange skin on fire. It’s definitely fun to serve your next happy hour.
