Top Down 2013 Cocktail Series: Introducing the Chameleon

Chameleon

The summer sunshine has returned after a poorly timed hiatus during last week’s Top Down. We are sad to have missed the opportunity to taste the Devil Hisself. Hopefully you made it at home and toasted the Dancing Outlaw. This week’s cocktail is inspired by Woody Allen’s turn as a human chameleon in ZELIG. The Driftwood Room’s Michael Robertson brings us a colorful drink reminiscent of a margarita on the rocks, but with a sweet surprise as the temperatures rise.

The Chameleon

1 1/2 oz. Blanco Tequila
3/4 oz. Triple Sec
3/4 oz. Lime Juice
3 Blood Orange ice cubes
Shake with ice and strain into a glass over a combination of fresh ice and blood orange ice cubes. As the blood orange ice cubes melt, the drink will change color, just like Woody Allen’s character.

ZELIG screens on Thursday, 8/8 atop the Hotel deLuxe parking garage. Get advance tickets here.

Doors at 7pm. Music at 8pm. Film at 9pm
