Drive (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) + Scorpion
Ingredients: 2 ounces light rum, 2 ounces orange juice, 1 1/2 ounces lemon juice, 1 ounce brandy, 1/2 ounce Orgeat syrup, 1 scoop shaved ice
Mixing Instructions: Blend and pour into a tall glass (tiki if available) filled with cracked ice. Top with one gardenia or an edible flower of your choice. (via Trader Vic’s of Los Angeles)
Notes: Only a handful of soundtracks in cinematic history have captured a specific mood and style so well. Cliff Martinez’s 80’s-cool, synth-heavy, finely calibrated score provides not only a steely backbone to the movie, but takes listeners on a subtle and sexy ambient musical journey. Both the soundtrack and cocktail place one in a blissful state of anticipation and tension - quiet, smooth and shockingly deadly.
