Movies and alcohol accompany each other superbly. The other night whilst I settled down to watch The Big Lebowski starring Jeff Bridges as the character otherwise favourably known by the world and fans alike as "The Dude for yet another fond viewing, I found myself being struck with the immediate urge to make myself a white Russian. It then came to my immediate realisation as I finished off my drink with poise that the films do place cocktails, mixed drinks and other alcoholic beverages in the spotlight while boasting appearances from much beloved actors and actresses. Most notably, many of you will also recall Hannibal Lecters confession of once eating a mans liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. It is that which clearly demonstrates how particular drinks both featured and mentioned within films have been transformed into objects that are now viewed as significantly and culturally identifiable. Their growth in popularity has led to peoples demand to consume them in bars, restaurants and in the comfort of their own homes. That said, particular drinks do also play a vital role in the plot and can be used as a running appearance by the director themselves. This list will look at these famous alcoholic beverages in detail.
