As a part of Vegan MoFo I decided to dedicate my Wednesday posts to Ladies' Night! You'll find ideas to host a fun movie party complete with drinks and snacks for the perfect girls night in.
First up is a recipe inspired by one of my favorite movies of all time Thoroughly Modern Millie!
Thoroughly Modern Millie is a musical comedy starring Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore. It was made in 1967, but is set in New York in the roaring 1920's. This movie is adorable, lighthearted and so much fun. I've been watching it since I was young, and I've made sure to introduce it to all my friends. I have a special place in my heart for "The Tapioca" which is a dance number that takes place when the two main characters meet for the first time. It's one of my favorite musical numbers from any movie ever!
In this clip you can see our villain trying to pass out some innocent looking punch, which she has actually poisoned. (See this movie has everything- singing, dancing, drama, and poison!)
In honor of the fancy punch at the friendship dance, I decided that I would make my own fancy drink to serve that would go perfectly when watching this movie.
Pomegranate Vanilla Limeade
makes about 4 cups, adapted from the kitchy kitchen
1 C lime juice (about 10 limes fresh squeezed)
2 C hot water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 C cold water
1/4 C agave
1/3 C pomegranate juice (optional)
Juice the limes into a blender, and then put the used lime halves into a large bowl. Cover with 2 cupes of hot water and stir in the vanilla extract. Let this sit for 10 minutes to pull more of the lime flavor out., then strain liquid into the blender. Add the cold water, agave, and pomegranate juice is desired. Blend everything together and then chill until serving.
As you can see from my photos, I made both the pomegranate version and also just a vanilla limeade version. Both were great and refreshing. Do you like to make fancy drinks to serve at parties?
Are you a musical fan? My husband hates them with a firey passion, so I always vote to watch musical movies at ladies' nights so I can get my fix!
Thanks for stopping by!
