It has been a quality day, adding to our lives more moments to treasure. Welcome our readers and friends from the US, New Zealand, Mexico, Ireland, & South Korea 😉
Sometimes, you feel you need a drink, but not any drink. I’m not talking liquor necessarily, but it could be. Why would you have this need for a drink? May be to swallow your pride, when choosing to watch a certain movie or play, and then it turned out to be a catastrophe.
Well, let me try to put it in a better phrasing.
The desire to defeat your feeling of disappointment sometimes necessitates having a drink, or at least this is how some people feel when they watch a bad movie, or have an unpleasant event.
Francis, my nephew, suggested a nice drink for me, to erase that bad memory that got into my brain after watching that X movie. I’ll tell what this drink is and how to make it, but first let me tell you what had happened with that movie.
This movie, by all means, not the one I should have watched. When I went out with my son, there were many new movies in theater, coz it was Christmas and New Year. I asked my son which one he would choose, he picked up LaLa Land, which was a lot of fun. I was happy that he did!
Last week, I saw “Jackie” movie, and frankly-speaking, I was terribly regretting the idea of watching it! To that extent, I was blaming myself. Why was that?
I thought for a while. I’m watching movies not necessarily for entertainment’s purposes only. Part of it, is entertainment, but I like to get more out of it. I like to know about history, about people who supposedly lived different lives. Learning something new and developing opinions that agree or disagree with the theme, etc.
Probably I was dissatisfied, because I expected to see more; not more action or mystery, but rather more of a good structure, which it had not. I think I understood why it did not succeed. May be the main reason was that it failed to capture the audience’s attention, the monotony and the repetition of the scenes, n others.
Ok! Forget about this film, and let’s have that fabulous drink called “Cherry Moon”. My nephew gave me its recipe. Very simple, it is, and tastes delicious and refreshing:
1.5 pats Cherry Noir flavored Vodka
3.5 parts lemon-lime soda
.5 part grenadine
Prep.: Build ingredients in the order listed in a rocks glass filled with ice, and stir. Present with a cherry. Building, or layering, these ingredients results in a beautiful spectrum of color that ads t the appeal of this cocktail. Resist the urge to stir to maintain the gradient of color.
After having a drink, I think I can say, I’ve seen worse movies. It was not the first one, it was just one of these bad movies’ nights. Just stay away from it, so you wouldn’t need a drink the way I did, haha!
