Misunderestimated Cocktails: W. Drink Specials

— by Caroline on Crack

I’ve been dying to see Oliver Stone’s George W. Bush biopic, W., ever since I first saw the hilarious trailers. Come on, Josh Brolin in the title role, Elizabeth Banks as his wife Laura, James Cromwell as dear ol’ constantly disappointed dad, Thandie Newton as Condi and Richard Dreyfus as Cheney. Brilliant casting!

RottenTomatoes.com only gave it a 61% but I don’t care. I wanna see it tonight (opening night), and I especially want to see it at the Landmark Theater in West L.A. which will be featuring some special cocktails ($12 each) just for the occasion. Of course, there’s nothing here in terms of cocktail ingenuity, just Han vodka concoctions with names to suit the movie, but still fun stuff.

  • The Decider: Cherry Bellini
  • The Quagmire: Han Vodka and Cranberry Juice With a Twist
  • Iraqi Oil Slick: Han Vodka Pomegranate Martini
  • Market Meltdown: Han Vodka Sour Apple Martini
  • Misunderestimated Martini: Han Vodka Cosmopolitan

Also, this theater has an amazing concession stand featuring snacks like my fave Tim Tams cookies, Pocky sticks, Popcornopolis caramel corn and Orville Redenbacher popcorn popped in sunflower oil.
