“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine…” Casablanca, a movie that still routinely tops lists of the best films of all time, was released on this very day in 1942.
The love triangle between cynical bar owner Rick Blaine, played by Humphrey Bogart, Resistance heroine Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) and her husband Victor Laszlo (Paul Heinreid) has aged remarkably well. As befits a movie that received nine Oscar nominations in 1943 and won three statuettes, it has also inspired a number of cocktails.
Curl up with a copy of the film and one of our favourite Casablanca cocktails, the Casablanca, a tangy blend of rum, citrus and maraschino. "Play it, Sam."
