Not all comic books feature superheroes battling otherworldly creatures. Some, like The Kitchen, features a much more realistic story. Vertigo’s The Kitchen is getting its movie debut and we’ve created a brand new recipe, The Business. Not only that, we have a great giveaway as well!
In The Kitchen it’s “New York City, 1978. The 20 blocks of pawnshops, porn palaces and dive bars between 8th Avenue and the Hudson River owned by the Irish mafia and known as Hell’s Kitchen was never the easiest place to live. Or the safest. But for mob wives Kathy, Ruby, and Claire–played by Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss–things are about to take a radical, dramatic turn. When their husbands are sent to prison by the FBI the women take business into their own hands, running the rackets and taking out the competition…literally. Now they run the neighborhood.”
The recipe for The Business took its inspiration from a few different places. First, we looked at the crime families in the movie. The Irish and Italian mob families were what our spirit selection was based on. The use of Irish whiskey and amaretto make this drink strong yet still feminine, much like the characters in the film.
In addition to this delicious cocktail recipe, we are giving away 10 pairs of VIP Advanced Screening Passes to an advanced showing of The Kitchen! The showing will be held at Harkins Tempe Marketplace on Tuesday, August 6th. The screening starts at 7 pm and the winners should arrive at 6:15 in order to guarantee their seating. Winners will be selected on Sunday, August 4th. Good luck!
