Famous drinks ordered in movies

These cocktails have been featured in some of the best movies in history - becoming icons in their own right.

White Russian: 'The Big Lebowski'

A typical White Russian is made with ice, vodka, coffee liqueur, and milk. The Dude liked his White Russians so much he ordered them throughout the entire film "The Big Lebowski".

Orange Whip: 'The Blues Brothers'

An Orange Whip would traditionally be one egg white, orange sherbet, and orange juice blended until smooth. The drink was made famous by "The Blues Brothers" when Burton Mercer declares, "Who wants an Orange Whip? Orange Whip? Orange Whip? Three Orange Whips!" And truthfully, we could down a couple of these ourselves.

French 75: 'Casablanca'

A French 75 is one of the most classic of champagne cocktails. It contains muddled sugar and lemon juice that is mixed with cognac and topped with champagne. The drink is refreshing and delicious but it was truly brought to fame in "Casablanca" when Yvonne’s boyfriend orders the drink.

Red Eye: 'Cocktail'

This cocktail is made with vodka, an egg, Bloody Mary mix and topped with a cold beer. This drink has been well known as a hangover cure but it was also made famous in the Tom Cruise movie "Cocktail" when Koglan asks Flannigan if he knows how to make the infamous cocktail.

Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks with a Twist: 'Groundhog Day'

Sweet vermouth isn’t typically ordered at a bar unless it’s in a martini and even then, most people like their martinis bone-dry. This drink was made famous by Bill Murray’s character Phil Connors in "Groundhog Day" when he orders the drink and then states, "It always makes me think of Rome, the way the sun hits the buildings in the afternoon."

Cosmopolitan: 'Sex and The City'

While the drink was a staple throughout the television series, at the end of the first movie the girls head out to a New York City bar to celebrate and order a round of Cosmopolitans. When Miranda asks, "Why did we stop drinking these?" Carrie responds, "Because everyone else started!" A traditional Cosmo à la the "Sex and The City" gals, is made with vodka, orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and a splash of lime cordial.
