Who doesn’t love a good spy movie? We love them! There is something about the mystery and intrigue of them that is really appealing! We are pretty excited for Charlize Theron’s latest film, Atomic Blonde. We even created a delicious cocktail that is perfect for a spy.
The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
Our cocktail The Coldest City is named for the comic that Atomic Blonde is based off of. When creating The Coldest City we started with the idea of creating a martini. With Charlize Theron’s character being MI6, we immediately thought of James Bond. Therefore, we want to do a take on the martini that was not only strong but also had a feminine flair. We decided to do this with Creme de Violette, one of our favorite spirits.
