Madras Sunglass Straps. And a Madras Cocktail. A Perfect Summer Pair.
The 80’s just may have been the height of culture and sophistication. Contributing to that decade of cultural dominance was madras.
You know it as a gloriously preppy summer mess of patterns and bright colors. You may not know that it was also an iconic summer cocktail.
The cocktail was probably called a “Madras” because it looked the part—bright colors with some separation. And because if you are going to drink the Madras you really ought to be wearing some.
Wardrobe short on madras?! Not to worry – we have you covered with these madras sunglass straps.
Without further adieu here's the recipe.
-1 Part Cranberry Juice
-2 Parts Orange Juice
-1 Part Vodka
Pro’s Tip: Pouring over the back of a spoon can help preserve separation. The separation of the color gives it that “Madras” look which earned the cocktail its name.
