Midnight in Paris
We’re pretty sure the characters ate some delicious bistro meals, but what we remember most from the movie is the wild post-midnight drinking. Capture the jazzy mood of 1920s Paris with cocktails from the time, like the French 75, named after a piece of World War I artillery -- it’s a delicious mix of gin, lemon juice and sugar, topped with Champagne. Or serve a sidecar, another popular Jazz Age drink, made with cognac, orange liqueur and lemon juice.
Joe Campanale makes an easy Champagne cocktail.
