Matt Damon had his wife Luciana on his arm last night for the NYC premiere of The Adjustment Bureau, which hits theaters early next month. He's been on the East Coast for the last few days doing press for the film during a break from shooting We Bought a Zoo in LA. It was an evening of work despite the Valentine's Day holiday, but Matt said at the junket on Saturday that he and Luciana don't need special occasions or big gestures. When asked what dramatic move he's made for her, Matt said, "You build your life around someone, that's pretty crazy. But it's more incrementally. There's no moment where I'm like Tom Cruise in Born on the Fourth of July running down the street in the rain . . . any minute I'm not working I go home. But we have a two week rule." They're among the many couples who are happy to show PDA any day of the year, though Matt's costar, Emily Blunt, was without her own spouse John Krasinski. She still was decked out for the screening, wearing a salmon-colored Elie Saab concoction. Emily and Matt returned to the East Coast after filming the project at iconic Big Apple landmarks last year, and their amazing access to those spots is evident in the trailer — stay tuned for more from Matt and Emily's big night on PopSugar Rush!
If you've never sipped mezcal before, I recommend you get your hands on a bottle of Ilegal. Made from the agave of Oaxaca, mezcal is like tequila's smoky cousin; Ilegal's offering, while smoky, is extremely sippable. It's enjoyable on the rocks and great in a cocktail. To experiment with mezcal, start with this drink: a delightful blend of potent mezcal and refreshing apple cider. Lime juice and Cointreau make the libation balanced in both acidity and sweetness. The combination of apples and ginger gives the drink a seasonal feel that's enhanced by the warming quality of the mezcal. Interested in the recipe? Keep reading.
