How delightfully perverse to do a black-and-white film set in the Amazon. And there should be an expression for “road movie” that takes place on a river.
But all throughout this film (which is mostly pretty amazing), I was thinking “they’re going to do the ‘insane in the jungle’ cliche complete with atrocities”, and they did. So I deduct two Michelin stars for that alone.
And it started off so well…
Embrace of the Serpent. Ciro Guerra. 2015. Colombia.
- 1 part rum
- 1 part vodka
- 1 part tequila
- 2 parts coconut cream
- 1 part coconot water
- 1 part lime juice
- sugar to taste
Run everything through a blender with ice cubes. Garnish with a lime slice.
I’m so bad at planning that I wasn’t able to find fresh drinking coconuts for this, so I substituted coconut water from a can.
And perhaps that should be cream of coconut instead of coconut cream? The texture just didn’t seem… right…
