Running through February 8, the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan will be showing the latest of their Henri Matisse exhibitions. "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs" puts on display the artist's known history of collaging paper cut-outs instead of using acrylics to create flat plains of color in his work. Since the art is undoubtedly narrows the line between arts and crafts, Cacao Prieto Distillery got a little crafty themselves, creating the Bleu Céleste, a brightly colored cocktail complete with a very Matisse-shaped orange peel to garnish the rim. Enjoy this artsy cocktail while checking out the included photos of some of the works on display at the MoMA exhibition, including a preview of their exclusively published book "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs". ------------------------------------------------------------------- Bleu Céleste Cocktail 2 1/2 ounces Blue Curaçao 1 ounce white rum 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice Large piece of orange rind, shaved thin for garnish 1. Mix Blue Curaçao, rum, and lemon juice in a shaker. Pour over ice. 2. Use scissors to cut out fun, Matisse-inspired shapes from the orange rind. 3. Cut a small indentation and prop on the rim of the glass.
HENRI MATISSE, HUZZAH. these would look good in the matisse glasses i bought at MOMA over the summer.
Inventive and fun. This is a terrific way of melding event-centric libations to venues and exhibitions. Great idea.
@nineincher You bought Matisse glasses?! What do they look like?
