The Bleu Céleste: A Cocktail Inspired By MoMA's New Henri Matisse Exhibition

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.
