Cocktails inspirés de ma vie quotidienne

Love Lies Bleeding

I went to see Love Lies Bleeding at the Place des Arts on Thursday.  The ballet consisted of 14 Elton John songs spectacularly performed by the talented Alberta Ballet dancers . I was transported in an imaginary universe, were erotism and sensuality were center stage. 

I decided that I was going to make a cocktail in honour of the show, and lucky me, I found the perfect recipe on the Absolut Drinks website. The recipe called for Orange Curaçao, but I chose to use Blue Curaçao instead.

Je suis allée voir Love Lies Bleeding à la Place des Arts jeudi dernier. Le spectacle consistait de 14 chansons tirés de l’oeuvre d’Elton John, interprétées subliment par la troupe de danseurs du Ballet de l’Alberta. Érotisme et sensualité étaient à l’honeur. 

Je voulais préparer un cocktail inspiré par le spectacle, et j’ai trouvé la recette parfaite sur le site Absolut Drinks. J’ai choisi d’utiliser du Blue Curaçao plutôt que du Orange Curaçao tel que dicté dans la recette.

2 oz Absolut Vodka

1 oz Dry Vermouth

1 Oz Blue Curacçao

I wanted to make my cocktail a little more sparkly, so I decided that I was going to add texture to the rim of my glass.

I found this AMAZING recipe for edible glitter on Key Ingredient.

J’avais envie de créer un cocktail un peu plus étincelant en y ajoutant de la texture sur le rebord du verre.

Shake, shake, shake…

Rocket Man is one of my favourite Elton John song, so I was very pleased with the fact that it had been selected for the ballet. Jean Grand-Maître did not disapoint with his choreography either. 

Rocket Man est l’une de mes chansons favorites de Elton John. J’étais heureuse de voir qu’elle avait été sélectionnée pour le ballet. La choréraphie de Jean-Grand Maître ne m’a pas déçue.
