Description: The New York Times said of Milstead’s 1980s films: “Those who could get past the unremitting weirdness of Divine’s performance discovered that the actor/actress had genuine talent, including a natural sense of comic timing and an uncanny gift for slapstick.” This cocktail is homage to Harris Glenn Milstead better known as the famous drag queen Divine. It is a combination of three notorious tiki drinks Blue Hawaii, Hurricane and Pina colada all combining to form an outrageous performance similar to Divine’s body of work.
