Are you a fan of Jazz? Then you are in luck with this delicious drink for the summer. It will take you down the road to music and movies then spin you back around to find the right take on your favorite movie. So let’s look at the incredible film, “All that Jazz.”
All That Jazz is a 1979 American musical drama film directed by Bob Fosse. The screenplay, by Robert Alan Aurthur and Fosse, is a semi-autobiographical adventure based on aspects of Fosse’s life and career as a dancer, choreographer, and director.
The movie is about Joe Gideon, a theater director and choreographer trying to balance his career during his latest Broadway musical while editing a Hollywood film he has directing. According to Wikipedia, “He is a workaholic who chain-smokes cigarettes; without a daily dose of Vivaldi, Visine, Alka-Seltzer, Dexedrine, and sex, he wouldn’t have the energy to keep up the biggest “show” of all—his life. His girlfriend Katie Jagger, his ex-wife Audrey Paris, and daughter Michelle try to pull him back from the brink, but it is too late for his exhausted body and stress-ravaged heart. In his imagination, he flirts with an angel of death named Angelique.”
You can be the judge of it, and why not enjoy a drink with it.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic novel turned film about racism and justice in a fictional town of Alabama in the 1930s. The film follows a family of two young children, Scout and Jem, and their father, Atticus. The father is a lawyer in the town and is chosen to represent a black man who is accused of raping a white girl. Atticus and the children are harassed for their father serving this black man, and the children are eventually even attacked. Even with the father’s efforts to prove his client’s innocence, he is found guilty and ultimately killed by a deputy who claims he was trying to escape during transport. This story and film were ahead of their time as they address major social issues of racism and the justice system that are still prevalent today. This film will continue to be remembered and enjoyed for future years to come.
After making a trip to the British Virgin Islands, we thought it might be great to add a special drink that we tasted in the islands. It’s both refreshing, and of course, it has a little extra kick due to a large amount of rum inside this particular drink. You can serve frozen or on the rocks!!! Plus you might want to listen to this song while you are making them.
