Here we have a simple, elegant cocktail that will put a smile on your face as big as the woman's it was named for. The Lita Grey comes from Péché in Austin, Texas and you can find it on their cocktail menu in the early part of 2015.

Lita Grey may not be the biggest name in classic cinema, but one of her husbands was. She was the young (15-year-old) second wife of Charlie Chaplin and appeared in three of his movies before and during their short marriage.

The Hollywood story behind this drink makes it perfect for movie-themed parties like watching the Oscars and though it is a modern creation, it has a classic styling that makes it a perfect companion to the Charlie Chaplin Cocktail.
