Sex 2 Sells

Going to see the movie? Have a cocktail!

By John Chandler May 25, 2010

Now you can get tipsy like the stars!

Ever mindful of that all-important product tie-in designed to spur us to even greater heights of consumption, the folks at Mexico’s Dobel Diamond Tequila sent this little gem my way. (By the way, Sex and the City 2 opens Thursday. Make sure to bring plenty of tequila!)

With the highly anticipated Sex and the City 2 movie in theaters at the end of May, we thought it would be fun to salute the men in the movie for a change. Below, please find cocktails inspired by the MEN in Sex and the City that we have grown to hate and love. And lets face it—without them, there wouldn’t be much sex in the city.

Get it? Ha ha ha! True that, oh witty press release! But I’m a bit surprised we’re not seeing Sex in the City 2 Happy Meal toys at McDonald’s. Another golden opportunity missed. Anyway, if this sort of branding raises your hackles, feel free to substitute the tequila of your choice.

By the way drinking buddies, if you have your own movie tie-in cocktail recipes, I’d love to hear them. Perhaps something from Animal House or Leaving Las Vegas?

Mr. Big and the Dobel Neat: This cocktail blends elegance with a touch of arrogance… just like Mr. Big’s distinct style.
