For every “Twist” performance, we pair the diverse setlists with Dazzle’s fabulous drink menu for the perfect pairings. Here’s what we’ve got for DPO With a Twist on Friday, February 1:
Carlos Salzedo: Chanson dans la Nuit
pairs with… Old Soul Cabernet
You might expect a 1920s French composition to be paired with a gin cocktail, but Salzedo moved to the States as a young man. The Old Soul California Cabernet is the perfect blend of French heritage and American boldness.
Henry Mancini: Pink Panther
pairs with… The State
Sneak a sip of this pink drink while listening to this jazzy ’60 theme song by 20-time Grammy winner Henry Mancini.
Rebecca Moritzky: Varied Ztlaw
pairs with… Martini with a twist
A twist on a traditional waltz deserves to be paired with the most classic cocktail — the martini, with a twist.
Bart Howard: Fly Me to the Moon
pairs with… Whiskey
Ol’ Blue Eyes’ signature cocktail was Jack Daniels Tennessee whiskey, ice, and water. Keep it simple with his signature.
Moritzky: Nix’ Meteor Shower

A glass of shooting stars. What else is there to say?
Bernard Andres: Épices
pairs with… The Baur’s

Moritzky: Castle in the Mist
pairs with… Aspall Dry English Cider
You may need to use your imagination to see a castle in the mist, but a cool, dry English cider in your hand is just moments away.
Deborah Henson-Conant: Baroque Flamenco
pairs with… Sangria
You’ll want to dance off to Spain with a glass of sangria when you hear the dramatic rhythms of Henson-Conant’s Baroque Flamenco.
Leonard Bernstein: Overture to Candide
pairs with… The Marquette
Bernstein described his operetta, Candide, as a love letter to Europe. Traverse the continent with Italian prosecco spiked with London gin boasting a French name.
Bernstein: “Make Our Garden Grow” from Candide
pairs with… The Chop Suey
The gin-based cocktail is infused and topped with all things verdant including lime, basil, cucumber and matcha-ginger foam. You don’t need a green thumb to enjoy this pairing with Bernstein’s operetta’s lush finale.
Bernstein: Music for Brass

Bernstein: Selections from West Side Story
pairs with… The American
The iconic Broadway musical showcases Bernstein’s quintessential American sound. A rustic blackberry-sage simple syrup sweetens a spicy rye whiskey in The American cocktail.
