Movie cocktails: Glass (2019)
Following from his films Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016), writer-director M. Night Shyamalan brings together three central characters for this comic-book-themed crossover. Which says to me that I need to make a drink featuring three equal ingredients.
Which says to me that I need to make a Negroni riff.
I used Boë Violet Gin to represent Samuel L Jackson's bold and often purple-dressed Mr Glass and, to keep the drink as clear as its namesake, I swapped Campari for Italicus, a complex liqueur to match the identity-crisis-ridden hero, David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis).
Then for the last third, to represent JamesMcAvoy's multiple-personalitied ‘Horde’, I SPLIT (you see what I did there) between a dry vermouth and a white vermouth.
Then, in honour of the filmmaker himself, I garnished with the twistiest of twists.
1oz Italicus Rosolio De Bergamotto
1/2oz Dry Vermouth
1/2oz White Vermouth
Method: Stir all ingredients with ice and strain over a large ice cube - which really should have been much clearer, given the theme - and garnish with a lemon twist.
