While the heat might be radiating from the screen when the highly anticipated Blonde debuts on Netflix, viewers might need a sip to toast the legendary iconic. Although Marilyn Monroe might have the sparkle on the screen, it does not mean that a little twinkle cannot come to the couch. With The Glenlivet Blonde Royale, everyone can raise a glass to a life like no other.

Much has been said about the new Netflix movie, Blonde. While the director told Newsweek that this film is unique since it portrays a woman’s perspective, that anguish woven into the story can leave some people wondering. At the same time, the director puts on an artistic show with stunning imagery and an emotional score.

With three hours of strife, difficulties and some triumphs moments, the movie implores viewers to find that reason to uncover the good life. A moment when the bubbles flow, the glass is more than half full and the laughter rings loud.

The Glenlivet has suggested a stunning cocktail to enjoy while watching Blonde or any time when there needs to be a little extra in the day. The Blonde Royale celebrates the finer things in life. From the golden liquid that captures the drinker’s attention to the tickling of the bubbles with that first sip, this cocktail is one that lingers in the mind far after the glass has been emptied.

Over the years, The Glenlivet has stood out in the Scotch whisky category. While its history dates back to the 1800s, the celebrated liquor is never stuck in the past. Blending innovation with tradition, those bottles invite drinkers to enjoy the dram and discover the beauty that single malt offerings.

With the Blonde Royale, the cocktail combines The Glenlivet 12 Year Old with Champagne. Those tiny bubbles enliven the Scotch whisky. Adding the touch of sweetness with the honey and brightness from the lemon, it is a cocktail that will keep the celebration going all night long.
