Can the lenged of Marilyn Monroe be summed up in three ingredients? Well, three is the magic number when it comes to making the cocktail inspired by the famed Hollywood actress.
The Marilyn Monroe cocktail features one of the bombshell's favorite drinks: champagne. A dash of apple brandy and grenadine complete the ensemble. Of course, this special drink deserves not one, but two cherries on top.
We're not sure Marilyn actually enjoyed this cocktail in life, but we do know what she liked to eat. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn's passing so why not have a drink in her honor? Here's the recipe for the Marilyn Monroe cocktail, courtesy of Drink Mixer:
4 oz. (113 ml) champagne
1 oz. (28 ml) apple brandy
1 tsp. (5 ml) grenadine
Serve in a champagne flute with two cherries on a stick.
