The term "greatest comedy of all time" gets thrown around a lot, and the laurels of this statement frequently fall on the shoulders of SOME LIKE IT HOT. That's quite a weight to bear, and when you think about what tickles your funny bone you don't immediately think of the stylings of a film from 1959. If you haven't already taken the plunge to sit down with this Billy Wilder classic, I promise that you will not be disappointed.

Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe have never been better in this tale of two struggling musicians who witness a mob hit and are forced to hit the road with an all-female traveling band in the midst of Prohibition. It's Curtis/Lemmon in drag followed by nonstop situational humor: Monroe as a boozy floozy! Lemmon being wooed by a male millionaire! Men dressed as women sneaking in hooch on a train full of women and musical instruments! If seeing these three titans of cinema on display under the Academy Award-winning guidance of the great Billy Wilder isn't enough for you, well then Cinema Cocktails is here to ease you into it in non-Prohibition-style.

Alamo Beverage Director (and master mixologist) Bill Norris is turning his sights towards Champagne mixes and Manhattans made in hot water bottles. So, grab a drink, dress yourself up (in whatever gender you prefer), and get yourself ready for (undeniably) the greatest comedy of all time...now with booze! (Greg MacLennan)

Here are the SOME LIKE IT HOT specially themed cocktails for your imbibing pleasure:

Spats' Milk Punch
Hide your drinking from the fuzz with this rich and spicy milk punch.  Whiskey, Allspice Dram, vanilla and a hint of sugar, topped off with fresh nutmeg.

Sugar's Champagne Cocktail
Sparkling wine, sweetened with honey and a touch of bitters, finished off with some strawberry decolletage.

Party in Berth 7
A bourbon Manhattan, easy on the vermouth, and over ice.  Just like a slumber party with the Society Syncopators.
