About the Blog

Welcome to Cinema Sips, a blog that attempts to make the movie-watching experience even more enjoyable. How is this accomplished? By pairing films with cocktail recipes that reference or celebrate what you’re seeing on-screen.

Here are a few simple guidelines:

– Most of the films that I’ll be posting about are ones that I personally love.  That being said, if you’re really into westerns, action movies, or sci-fi, you may be a little disappointed by my selections.  However, I am going to do my best to include at least a few films outside my typical comfort zone.  If you find that a genre is being totally under-represented, let me know and I’ll do my best to fix that.

– If you have a movie that you want a cocktail pairing for, post it here or on the Cinema Sips Facebook page, or shoot me an email. I promise to do my best to come up with something quickly.

– If you are mixing these cocktails, I assume you’re over 21 and smart enough to know that you should be sitting in front of your TV drinking, not driving somewhere else. I leave drunk texting and social media posting to your own discretion.

-If you want to rent or purchase any of the films mentioned, I’ve provided links for you to do so.  The blog does generate income via Amazon affiliate links, so please- click away!

Hopefully, after a few months of reading Cinema Sips, your liquor cabinet will be appropriately stocked for any occasion, and your home media collection will be the envy of all your friends.  Cheers!

  1. We are about to watch Die Hard and will be making your suggested cocktail to accompany it. However, we will be watching Die Hard 2 later this week and need a cocktail to go with it.

    Any suggestions?

    Hope you are enjoying the Christmas season

    • Hi Geoff and Alan! So I’ve actually never seen Die Hard 2, though it was on in the background at my father’s house yesterday. It sounded like it took place in an airport? If that’s the case, I’d drink an Aviation: Crème de violette + Maraschino liqueur + Gin + Lemon juice
      Cheers, and happy New Year!

      • Thanks – will go and buy some Creme de violette tomorrow.

        By the way, watch Die Hard 2. It’s great. Alan loves Die Hard, whilst I prefer Die Hard 2.

        Thanks again

        Geoff & Alan

  2. Love this blog! Need to pace myself though… some of these are potent!

    The Great Escape (1963)

    Kelly’s Heroes (1970)

    I love your blog!!!
