Black Panther

Black Panther was a hugely successful movie. Some people found the movie’s storyline and message to be vital to its success. Other people saw the movie as an entertaining superhero masterpiece. It doesn’t matter the reason that brought people to the theater. It matters that people came.

As a Best Picture nominee, this film breaks many barriers. From its ensemble cast to its storyline, Black Panther is changing how the Academy views an award nominee. A box office success doesn’t negate its contribution to film. Success and importance can go hand in hand.

For this Oscars inspired cocktail, both the color and the flavor reference the movie. The sweet and sour cocktail is impressive visually, but also has a clearly defined flavor.
