Museum Cocktail Week: Your Suggestions

May 9, 2013

Entertainment, USA

Museum Diary isn’t the only one looking at museum inspired cocktails this week. Earlier in the week, the National Museum of Scotland put out a call for suggestions to name the new cocktail for their next late night event: RBS Museum Lates Dino Night! So there were lots of other dinosaur themed cocktail names floating around Twitter and Facebook, just as I had posted my Green Dinosaur recipe, such as

  • Rex on the Beach
  • Long Island Ice T-rex
  • Jurassic Juice
  • Fossil Fuel
  • Dino-mite

The guys from National Galleries Scotland really outdid themselves with their suggestions, which included stego-midori-saurus (which could have been a good alternative for my Midori flavoured Green Dinosaur), velociRUMaptor, and TheropVodKA. Whilst Museums Studies Reading chipped in  with ptero-dacquiri.

Moving away from the dinosaurs, there was also a suggestion from @MuseumTweets in the USA, for a a “Typewriter Eraser” – a mashup of a Mind Eraser cocktail (equal amounts of vodka, coffee liqueur and soda or tonic water), renamed for the Claes Oldenburg/ Coosje van Bruggen sculpture at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.


Other museum inspired cocktails suggestions included the MOMArtini, an Uf-fizz-i (lots of prosecco) and a Louvre Island Iced Tea. It’s been a really fun week. Please keep sharing your ideas, perhaps we’ll have a Museum Mixology contest some time ;)

And don’t forget to check back tomorrow for my final cocktail recipe for this week!
