Famous Celebrity Cocktails
1. Alfred Hitchcock’s White Lady
Everybody knows director Alfred Hitchcock as a cinematic genius but what may be surprising to some is finding out this movie legend is actually skilled in crafting delectable concoctions. According to some news sources, Hitchcock later became a “Grand Officer of the Burgundian Order of Tastevin.” His fondness for alcohol led him to purchase his own swanky wine cellar that is said to have 1,600 bottles in it. He particularly liked the White Lady, described as a blend of lemon juice, dry gin, and Cointreau. There are also speculations as to whether or not this recipe had egg in it.
2. Steven Soderbergh’s Singani Fat Radish Spritz

The incredibly talented George Clooney also seems to be an ace mixologist. He was once an owner of the tequila brand Casamigos, which he eventually sold back in 2017 for a hefty sum. With his background in the booze business, Clooney’s knowledge about alcohol came in handy with the creation of his unique spicy cucumber jalapeño margarita. He whipped up several kinds of these margaritas, each being breezy, bright, and summery as the next one. With beauty, charm, and talent to boot it’s best to call a lawyer to sue Clooney for having it all.

Before becoming the action star in Nakatomi Plaza, Bruce Willis was a very skilled bartender. Later on, he teamed up with Sobieski Vodka, which sprung an ad campaign and a number of recipes emphasizing the delectable bison grass vodka. Sadly, the collaboration between the Hollywood star and the vodka brand came to a bitter end. It seems like Willis had to take an attorney out for some drinks with that case.
6. Luis Buñuel’s Perfect Martini
Luis Bunuel is a surrealist genius. His critically-acclaimed movie The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and The Obscure Object pivoted him to international recognition.
