Hump Day Happy Hour

Cheers to the Blonde Bombshell

Were she alive, Marilyn Monroe would turn 85 today—and we're pretty sure she'd still be turning heads. Born Norma Jeane Baker, the '50s movie star won over audiences with roles in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry A Millionaire, and The Seven Year Itch.

Starring in over 30 films, Monroe remains one of the most iconic females of the 20th century. This week's made-for-Glo cocktail, "Femme Fatale," is a tribute to the woman who helped create, then subsequently break, Hollywood's dumb blonde mold.

The color of Duane Fernandez Jr.'s "Femme Fatale" mirrors Monroe's legendary white halter dress, and the cherries represent those luscious lips that so many couldn't resist. We doubt you'll be able to resist this delish drink in her honor.

"Femme Fatale"


2 oz. Flor de Caña Four-Year Rum

1 oz. Coco Lopez

0.5 oz. pineapple juice

1 dash of Lucid Absinthe


Combine Flor de Caña Rum, Coco Lopez and pineapple juice in a shaker with ice. Shake then strain into coupe style glass and top with dash of Lucid Absinthe. Garnish with two cherries.

Duane Fernandez Jr. is amixologist at Theater Bar in New York City.
