Have you read The Help? I haven’t yet, but so want to. In fact, I’m hoping I can at least start it during our road trip to San Diego next week. While in San Diego for BlogHer’11 next week, I’ll be attending an advanced screening of the film with the Disney/DreamWorks team and I’m super excited! I think the movie looks great and I’ve heard RAVE reviews about the book from just about everyone I know who has read it!
Here’s the movie preview in case you haven’t seen it yet:
1 oz. José Cuervo’s Platino silver tequila
1/2 oz. Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur
1/2 oz. cranberry juice
1/2 orange, squeezed
2 thin jalapeño slices
1/2 oz amaretto
1 1/2 oz Kahlua
1 oz cream
2 oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 oz. Cointreau
2 Dashes Lemon Juice
1 Dash Simple Syrup
2 oz apple brandy
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
juice of 1/2 lemons
1/2 slice lemon
The “Celia:” Sugary sweet, a true Southern treat.
1 oz. Bourbon
1 oz. Rum, light
1 oz. Schnapps, peach
1 oz. Triple Sec
1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Yukon Jack
1/2 oz. Grenadine
So, which character’s drink sounds most appealing to you? I’m thinking I’d like the “Celia” best! 🙂
The entire kit (courtesy of DreamWorks, which you can download here) has full treat recipes, non-alcoholic drink versions, plus a book club guide with questions.
Have you read the book? Do you plan to see the movie?
They all sound great…maybe in different seasons…Skeeter and Hilly in Fall, Aibileen in winter, Minny in Spring and Celia in Summer.
I read the gook and it’s super excellent! I’d love to see the movie to see how it compares.
Thanks for the great post! I found you through TCB. 🙂
