RECIPE: Share A Pink Cocktail With Michelle Pfeiffer

This summer’s hot period movie is “Cheri,” adapted from Colette’s 1920’s novel of the same name and starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Friend, and Kathy Bates.

Colette transformed from a convent girl to one hot mama, inciting a near riot by kissing a female lover in a 1907 performance at the Moulin Rouge in Paris.

This inspired Noilly Pratt Vermouth to create a cocktail for the film’s premiere called Le Baiser de Noilly (“Noilly’s Kiss”).

The NYC premiere was Tuesday night, and the stars and other revelers sipped away.

Girly pink in color, it’s perhaps an appropriate tribute to Cheri, the aging prostitute in 1920s Paris (Pfeiffer) who educates a younger man (Friend) in the ways of love. Oh la la!

Ingredients Per Drink

  • 1¼ ounce Noilly Pratt vermouth
  • ¼+ ounce Bombay Sapphire or other gin
  • ¾ ounce fresh pineapple juice
  • ¼ ounce grenadine (pomegranate syrup)
  • Pink grapefruit twist
  • Grated grapefruit zest for garnish
  • Garnish: 1 fresh raspberry

    1. COMBINE the ingredients except for the raspberry in a cocktail shaker. Shake and double strain into a glass.

    2. RUB a piece of pink grapefruit peel on the rim of the glass to impart the flavor of the oil from the peel.

    3. SPRINKLE the grapefruit zest on top of the drink, letting the oil from the grapefruit’s skin absorb into the foam to make the cocktail even more flavorful.

    4. FLOAT the raspberry on the drink and serve.
