Weekend Pairing

“The Invisible Man”
+ a Classic Martini

Elisabeth Moss in The Invisible Man movie

Nothing really seems “normal” this week, does it? So perhaps it's not surprising that in an unprecedented move, Universal Pictures and its specialty studio Focus Features are releasing their current cinematic lineupThe Invisible Man, The Hunt and Emma—available to stream on-demand for a 48-hour rental at the suggested price of $19.99 each. Is the price a touch high? Definitely. And honestly, I wish MGM had done this with James Bond, instead of pushing it back to the fall.

But I'll definitely be streaming The Invisible Man this weekend. Led by the always outstanding Elisabeth Moss (of Mad Men fame), this is a modern reboot of a classic horror film series that was actually based on a novel by H.G. Wells. It's a gaslighting thriller expertly retooled by writer-director Leigh Whannell for the era of #MeToo. It follows a woman attempting to escape her abusive and manipulative boyfriend after he acquires the ability to become invisible.

Your Pairing:

How about something simple? Perhaps, with ingredients you already have on hand? A classic martini seems fitting since it's strong yet see-through. Esquire shares a fool-proof way to make the old school drink and according to their bartending experts, it should be stirred—never shaken.
