As well as their character traits, characters in our favourite films and TV series often have their own signature drinks. Here are the iconic cocktails from 5 of our favourite leading ladies.
James Bond had the Martini and The Dude in The Big Lebowski had a White Russian, but our main female characters in films and TV series aren’t left out when it comes to cocktails that really define their personalities! All the proof you need is in this list of 5 iconic drinks.
1/ Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & The City and her Cosmopolitan:
We can’t miss her off this list. Even people who don’t watch the series know that this fashionista only has eyes for this one cocktail! And she has converted her friends more than once, starting with wise Charlotte.
2/ Sugar Kane, aka Marilyn Monroe from Some Like It Hot and her Manhattan:
A true classic that definitely deserves to be on this list with the sublime Marilyn Monroe when she was at her prime. Her character never turned down a glass but watch out for those Manhattans!
3/ Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s Swears By Her White Angel:
Here, simplicity and elegance with this cocktail made up of gin and vodka. A very fitting mix for the sublime Audrey Hepburn and her legendary class.
4/ Miss Daisy Buchanan and her Mint Julep in The Great Gatsby:
The beautiful and innocent Daisy had a breakthrough when she first tasted this delicious mix of whisky and peppermint. Since then, she hasn’t drunk anything else and we can understand why!
5/ The Desperate Housewives and their Margaritas:
All throughout the series, it wasn’t unusual to see the friends and neighbours sat on the porch of one of their houses sipping a well-mixed Margarita. A ritual that we 100% approve of, in moderation of course…
