Cocktails: The Great Gatsby

April 17, 2013

Let’s face it. I’m no mixologist. I had never even heard of vanilla vodka until 3 months ago. I am Gatsby_Cocktailterrible with liquor and am just really beginning to understand my way around wine. So when I was thinking of a possible cocktail named The Great Gatsby I knew someone, somewhere had to have already created it. I mean SURELY some bartender out there is just as obsessed with the novel and upcoming movie as I am. Right? Right! Because I found it! Muh hahahahahahaha! 

Thank you Highlands Bar & Grill for making this beverage and an even a bigger kudos for making it with one of the worlds tastiest white wine hybrids – Lillet Blanc. You’ve rocked my world. 

Cheers everyone!

    If you and Terri have not seen the movie yet go see it Asap! It’s a great movie. I also want to know if you guys think Leo is still as hot as he was in Titanic?
