The Marilyn Monroe Cocktail…

…I’ll Drink to That!

It’s Wednesday, midweek meltdown -have a drink day, and today it’s all about Marilyn!  Marilyn’s favorite (Wednesday kind of) drink was 1953 Dom Perignon, which I don’t happen to have- so instead I found a cocktail made in her honor and named after her.  Today is my first time trying this lovely pink drink and it’s quite good- although a little strong for my rarely enjoying alcohol tastebuds.  So here’s to you Marilyn Monroe!

The Marilyn Monroe

4 oz  Champagne

1 oz  Apple Brandy

1 tsp  Grenadine 

Mix in a cocktail shaker with ice and poor. Garnish with a cherry or two.


I used pink “California” Champagne and an extra tsp of Grenadine for extra sweetness…Cheers!

Marilyn Monroe, Natural Moments

“Beneath the make-up and behind the smile I’m just the girl who wishes for the world”

-Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe had a timelss beauty and an enticing spirit. There are countless wonderful pictures of the fabulous icon but some of the best are the ones that were taken during natural moments- outside of the glamorous photo shoots and movie sets.
