the Dirty District 9, the Explosive Bloody Mary…

If you’re looking for some movie-themed drinks for tonight’s partying, check out the specialty vodka drinks the Alliance of Women Film Journalists invented. We served these at our awards celebration a few weeks ago. My favorite: the Dirty District 9:

THE DIRTY DISTRICT NINE, honoring District Nine, the 2009 EDA Award winner for Cultural Crossover: Mix Blue Ice Vodka with Monin Espresso syrup and espresso coffee, shake over ice and drain into a martini glass, add garnish of Ghirardelli shaved chocolate and a chocolate-covered coffee bean

It’s like a mochachino with a kick.

There’s also The Special Education (honoring An Education), The Explosive Bloody Mary (honoring The Hurt Locker), The Pip-Pippa Lee (honoring The Private Lives of Pippa Lee), and The Way – Way – Waaay Up (honoring Up in the Air). Get the recipes here.

Cheerio to 2009.

The Slum Village trio dedicated Dirty District, their 2002 mix tape for Sequel, to breaking over a dozen fellow Detroit MCs. Boasting a darker, dirtier sound than the group’s 2000 debut, most every track on Dirty District was recorded at one studio, with Slum Village compatriots Ralph James Rice and T3 overseeing the production.

I’ve always suspected that the Alliance of Women Film Journalists really knows how to party.
