My Week with Marilyn Cocktail

Iconic, legendary and forever an inspiration to so many, we're paying tribute to  Marilyn Monroe with this cocktail recipe she enjoyed. Sweet and bubbly with a bit of punchy sass, it’s no wonder this was Ms. Monroe’s signature cocktail!

Raise a glass of this champagne-based beverage, sip like the classic Hollywood starlet and enjoy Marilyn's favorite cocktail recipe with some friends. It's a tangy sip that's ideal for a girl's night in thanks to it's simple recipe, but powerful kick.


  • 4 ounces Champagne, or dry sparkling white wine
  • 1 ounce apple brandy
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • 1 - 2 Maraschino cherries, for garnish

Pour the brandy and grenadine into a champagne flute. Hold the glass to the side slightly and pour the champagne or sparkling white wine over the brandy and grenadine. 

Garnish with two Maraschino cherries to enhance the sweet and tart taste as well as the soft pink-red hue.
