Matisse-inspired Cocktail Recipe + Diy
The Museum of Modern Art’s incredible new exhibit, Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs, is filled to the brim with entertaining and craft inspiration, as well as some of the most exuberant artwork ever made. Open through February 8 (RUN, don’t walk!), it’s the ultimate excuse for an artsy cocktail gathering in honor of the master’s works. We turned to our friends at Botanica, a bar owned by Red Hook’s Cacao Prieto Distillery, to concoct a special cocktail for the occasion. The “Bleu Céleste” pays homage to Matisse’s color palette and is topped with cutout-inspired garnishes. The drinks look even more animated sitting atop DIY cocktail napkins that we created with easy-to-find materials. The recipe is simple, so you can mix and chill a pitcher before your guests arrive.
