March 2nd will be here before we know it, and with it comes the Oscars, which means red carpet glamour and movies galore. Even if you haven’t seen all the films yet (I’m certainly behind), there’s no reason not to make a fun night of it. Any excuse to celebrate right? There’s more than one way to enjoy the Oscar buzz, so to improve any movies or awards shows you might watch, I rounded up my favorite cocktail recipes from around the web and listed them below for you to enjoy! Simply click the cocktail to find the recipe source.
An old school champagne cocktail.
You can never go wrong with a French 75 -sparkling wine, lemon juice and sugar. Perfect.
If you’re looking for something a little more exotic, try a ‘Dark and Stormy.’ The combination of dark rum, lime, and ginger beer is not only potent, but also pleasant.
Of course, if you’re looking for something to remind you that warm weather isn’t too far away, this Limoncello Collins will definitely hit the spot.
Mojitos are utterly delicious–and customizable. For some inspiration on how to make yours extra special, look at Cuba Libre’s extensive list of mojito flavors.
Lastly, you can never go wrong with a basic Martini. If basic isn’t your thing though, there’s no reason you can’t experiment with different flavors!
This list is by no means exhaustive, but it’s certainly a start. Of course, don’t forget your favorite barware!
Be sure to fill out an Oscar Ballot with friends, and then compare them after the awards are over–winner is entitled to bragging rights and a drink of their choice, at the very least.
