Get Your Oscar Party On

Roll out the red carpet, The Oscars are almost here!! It’s time to pop bottles, sit back, and dazzle at Hollywood’s A+ list. With two incredible hosts and so many strong nominees, this year’s Academy Awards show is going to be a doozy. And the best way to get through it is with some friends and a couple of cocktails.

We know your usual drinking habits tend to favor your wallet instead of your taste buds, but there’s something about The Oscars and Natty Ice that just don’t mix.  It’s a glamorous event so it requires a glamorous (drinking) menu. We found two cocktails worthy of this red carpet, so invite the girls over and wow them with a few of these:

Champagne Hotel California Cocktails
– 1 ounce tequila
– 2 ounces pineapple juice
– 2 ounces mandarin orange juice
– Top it all off with Champagne

Show off your bartending skills:
Mix the tequila and juices with ice. Strain into a serving glass of your choice. Add in Champagne and cheers!

Peppermint Patty Martini
-1 ounce vodka
-1 ounce chocolate liqueur (such as Godiva Chocolate liqueur)
-1 ounce peppermint Schnapps
-Peppermint stick or peppermint and chocolate reception stick

Show off your bartending skills:
Blend the vodka, chocolate liqueur and peppermint schnapps with crushed ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour into a frosted martini glass and garnish with a peppermint candy stick.

Want to throw in a game to make it more exciting? (Lord knows the fun starts to fade after three martinis and a few long-winded acceptance speeches…) Have everyone come early and throw down $10. Then set up a spreadsheet where everyone has to choose the winners in every single category (or even just the biggies). Watch the show, find out who has the most picks right and the winner gets the entire pot!
