Graduate Tuesdays, Are You Trying To Seduce Me? - Elaine Robinson, Scarborough Fair
In the movie, “Scarborough Fair” by Simon and Garfunkel represented Elaine as Ben’s lost love. This drink represents the sweetness and beauty of Elaine, but with the dreamy flavors of what Elaine represented to Ben, which was something worth fighting for.
