An APERITIF To REMEMBER Movie Cocktail


(Cocktails inspired by the movies, Oscar nominees and winners.)

AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER, 1957
Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr
Nominated (1958) for: Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Music, Original Song (For the song "An Affair to Remember"), Best Music, Scoring

Though it didn't win an Oscar, An Affair To Remember was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Original Song. This was one of my mother's favorite movies, we watched it together often and my favorite part was always the piano solo that featured that title song. This is why I chose to do a cocktail tribute to this particular movie, to remember the great moments with my mom.

Plus, An Aperitif To Remember popped into my pun twisted brain and it was too good a movie cocktail name to pass up. This one's light on alcohol, refreshingly fruity and sparkling!
