Oscar Night Libations

red-carpet_whiteOh yeah…I’m that girl. I’m the girl who waits for Awards season all year long. I try to see as many of the nominated films as possible. I have my girlfriends over for cocktails and fancy-schmancy appetizers and we “oooo” and “ahhh” over the glamour of the red carpet. Yep, that’s me.

 

I’m not ashamed of this fact—quite proud actually and I’m guessing I’m not alone. Yes, I’ve even known a guy or two (straight guys!) who’ve been known to throw an at-home Oscar-viewing party. So if you too are Oscar-crazed, pretentious about film, or just love the fashion, you’ll appreciate these two cocktail recipe ideas for this Sunday.

 

The Red Carpet:

 

1 ½ oz. vodka

1 oz. Compari

1 oz. Hiram Walker Pomegranate Schnapps

1 oz. Pomegranate Juice

½ oz. Simple Syrup

 

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon slice.

 

Winslet Cocktail: (it’s really the Starlet Cocktail, but I like this name better)REVOLUTIONARY ROAD

 

1 oz. Absinthe

1 oz. Orange flavored vodka

1 oz. Hiram Walker Black Raspberry Liqueur

1 oz. champagne

 

Combine Absinthe, vodka, and black raspberry liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with champagne. Garnish with a raspberry.
