A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about French movies and their perfect wine pairings. Since then, I have had the privilege to travel and see more amazing countries throughout Europe. In honor of it being the last week of mu study abroad program, I wanted to write another movies and their drink pairings post based out of the other countries I have visited.
I. United Kingdom
Harry Potter is a fan favorite in the United Kingdom. This film series is based off of the Harry Potter novels by J.K. Rowling. This series consists of eight fantasy films that are full of magic, adventure, and a tad bit of young love. If you know anything about the United Kingdom, then you know that they have a lot of pride in their pale ales. So, if you do decide to waste a few hours on watching these films, try having a pale ale like Landlord by Timothy Taylor’s. Its a stronger ale, but it is very tasty.
P.S. I Love You is a movie about a young widow who discovers her late husband has left her ten messages that are intended to help ease her pain and move on with her life. Because this movie is based in Dublin, it only makes sense that you enjoy this film with a Guinness. In my opinion, Guinness tastes like poison unless you get it straight from the tap of an Irish pub. So I recommend that you fly to Dublin if you intend to watch this movie with a Guinness.
Mama Mia is by far one of the most popular films to come out of the Greek Islands. This is a story of a bride-to-be trying to find her father using the popular songs by ABBA. This fun movie deserves a spirited drink. I recommend Tsipouro. This drink it very strong and very sweet. It is recommended to only have a small amount and chilled. When I had this drink it surely kicked me in the bum, but the Greeks love it!
