Since I will be in Seattle this weekend I thought that I would choose a cocktail this week named after the classic movie, An Affair to Remember, which inspired Sleepless in Seattle. In this romantic comedy Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks fall in love after she hears his story of lost love on the radio. Their story ends, or rather begins, with their climatic meeting at the top of the Empire State Building. This meeting references the reunion of Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr at the top of the Empire State Building in the original movie, An Affair to Remember. Both classics, both touching, both “chick flicks”, but both so worth watching!
So in honor of Sleepless in Seattle, here is a recipe for the “An Affair to Remember Cocktail”:
- 1/2 oz amaretto
- 1/2 oz triple sec
- 1/2 oz vodka
- 1/2 oz creme de cacao
- 1 oz cream
Fill cocktail shaker with ice and all ingredients, shake well. Pour into martini glass and enjoy!
