The Marilyn Monroe cocktail is a classy champagne drink. With great color and body this drink is named after our favorite Hollywood starlet.
If you are having a glamorous theme, a Hollywood themed wedding or a movies theme, this could truly be your signature cocktail.
Honoring our favorite girl doesn't come cheap.The original
recipe is made with Dom Perignon, but while we want to entertain, I also
believe in being cost effective.
A brut champagne needs to be used. If you want to go with quality without breaking the bank, you can use the great quality Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial which is made by the same house as Dom Perignon.
Let's get to work.
For one cocktail:
* 4 measures of well chilled champagne
* 1 measure of applejack or calvados
* ¼ measure of grenadine
* cocktail cherries to garnish
Place all the ingredients in a champagne saucer. Give the drink a gently stir and finish by garnishing it with a couple of cocktail cherries.
You will have a beautiful red cocktail as a result.
