My habit of “On the side” was finally validated with this movie in the Holiday Classics series. “When Harry Met Sally” is the story of two friends that go through a tumultuous journey to finally realize they are truly, deeply, madly in love with each other. This power house cast of Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal, Carrie Fisher, and Bruno Kirby was directed by Rob Reiner. Written by Nora Ephron, there are too many funny moments to list. The iconic scene in the diner when Meg Ryan fakes an orgasm might be one of the best moments on film ever, capped off beautifully by Rob Reiner’s mom (one of the extras in the diner having lunch), when she says, “I’ll have what she is having”.
This cocktail was inspired by this movie that reminds us that sometimes everything we want and long for, we actually already have in our lives.
