Oscar's Week: Black Swan

In one of the best performances of the year, Natalie Portman’s startling character portrayal in the Black Swan is more than a psychological thriller. Toast her swirl of brilliance and insanity from White Swan to Black Swan, while drinking these cocktails to match. Begin with the White Lady in its classic and purest form and end with the dark and deliciously menacing Cointreau Noir in Black Ice.

The White Lady
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 2 oz. Gin
  • 3/4 oz. Lemon juice
Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Black Ice
  • 3 oz. Cointreau Noir
  • Ice cubes
Pour over ice and enjoy.

What a sexy Martini glass! This would perfectly match Natalie Portman's portrayal. The glass looks like one of those recycled glass drinkware I saw in a thrift shop a week ago. And one more thing, that goblet glass holding Black Ice makes the drink very sophisticated.
