This is a public service announcement for my Dallas-Fort Worth readers: Contemporary Theatre of Dallas (5601 Sears Avenue, Dallas, TX) has a bar located INSIDE THE THEATRE and they have show-themed cocktails for just $6! You have two weekends left to see As We Lie Still, a new musical directed by the wonderful Michael Serrecchia. Tickets to the show are $10-$40. You can order tickets online here or call the Box Office at 214-828-0094.
The musical, which I had the pleasure of watching at a special preview night, is about a magician in the early twentieth century who discovers real magic. CTD actually had a real magician, Trigg Watson (no relation), come up with the magic seen in the show. I would tell you about some of the magic but I don’t want to spoil the fun! The CTD bartender came up with three cocktails themed after the magical musical: The Levitation, Limbo, and The Resurrection. Here’s the recipe for my favorite if you want to shake it up at home!
1/4 oz Solerno Blood Orange Liquor
7oz Cranberry Juice Cocktail
Lime Wedge, for garnish
Directions: Pour all ingredients over ice and stir.
