The Oscars are upon us and there are tons of glamorous Hollywood party ideas. A red carpet from your door to the TV. Little gold stars on every toothpick. Wolfgang Puck's Oscar-shaped smoked salmon. But let’s not forget the most import part of this classy evening: drinks.
Create signature cocktails inspired by the nominees so your party guests can show their support for their favorite films. Be sure to offer non-alcoholic options for your guests not drinking.
Here are ideas for some of the best picture nominees:
This French film celebrates the classic days of filmmaking. Black and white. Silent. 4:3 aspect ration. Celebrate with a classic French drink: the Champagne Cocktail.
Whether you love this movie for beautiful Hawaii or beautiful George Clooney, celebrate with a Mai Tai or Blended Blue Hawaiian. If you're looking for appetizer or snack pairings, check out our collection of Hawaiian recipes.
Transport your guests to Paris in the 1920s with an authentic Absinthe Cocktail. Look for a brand that does not have "liqueur" on the label because that means it's been bottled with sugar. True absinthe is not bottled with sugar.
If a guest has one too many cocktails and crashes on your couch, continue the Oscar celebration in the morning with—no, not another cocktail—café au lait and stolen croissants a la Hugo.
