Come Party With Me Movie Night — Drinks

Deciding what drinks to serve at my French-themed Movie Night was surprisingly trés facile! Besides sparkling and still water, I'll pour one signature cocktail and offer guests a tasting of French wines.

A French martini, made with pineapple juice and chambord, will be served with the baked brie appetizer.

A rich, buttery Chardonnay pairs nicely with the shrimp bisque. With the bacon-wrapped chicken breasts pour a lighter, fruity red like a Pinot Noir. After the movie, finish the night with a glass of champagne and the chocolate soufflé.

For French martini recipe,


French Martini
From David Lawrence

2 ounces of good vodka
1 ounce of Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
4 ounces of pineapple juice

  1. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, tumble in a handful of ice, and shake vigorously.
  2. Strain into a frosted martini glass.

Serves one.
