Black Swan Martini & Recipe

Morning all, hope all is well. If you have time, I think you should check out my other blog, The Melbourne Takeover, for my Australia adventures! Just a side bar

I saw this on People just now. Here we have the Black Swan Martini, based, of course, on the movie Black Swan starring Natalie Portman. (Which was amazing by the way! If you haven't seen it, GO!!! It's still out, right?)  This is a grown and sexy drink right here haha! I want to make one of these!!! You know, when I'm officially legal to drink in America on October 1st this year *cough cough* But.... I guess, technically, I can make one now since Australia's legal drinking age is 18. Hmmm...

The Black Swan Martina was created by Cheryl Cecchetto, who has planned the Governors' Ball, the official afterparty for the Oscars, for the past 22 years. And with the awards show airing at the end of the month, Cheryl came out with this beautiful drink, almost too pretty to drink if you ask me. A white chocolate martini, with the edges of the glasses dipped in brown sugar for the dark effect. Check out the recipe after the jump to make your own Black Swan Martini!

• ½ cup half and half
