Stylish Beverages: Oscar-Worthy Cocktails for Tonight’s Ceremonies

Tonight is the Academy Awards and most of you are heading out to Oscar parties. If you’re not, what are you waiting for? Order some takeout, run to the liquor store and have an impromptu party for your besties! Tonight is the night we wait for all year. It’s the Fashion Olympics, people!

Before I head out to get my hair done for my friend Dina’s Oscar bash, I thought I’d share a fun little cocktail recipe with you lovelies. The Oscars come but once a year and, as I’ve said, fashion fans consider it a high holiday. This means that only two things can really be served a la skinny fashion people: vodka or champagne.  You gotta bring your A-game with the fabulous new Absolut Berri Acai (a vodka containing a berry found to be helpful in weight loss) and Here are two recipes for must-have cocktails for tonight’s red carpet viewing:

ABSOLUT Berri Honey
3 parts ABSOLUT BERRI AÇAÍ
3 parts lemon juice
2 parts honey syrup

Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

As for sparking wines, if you want excellent taste at an excellent price, I suggest Barefoot Bubbly Brut Cuvee, which is lovely by itself or mixed in a fabulous concoction like this:

Champagne Celebration
1/2 oz Cointreau® orange liqueur
1/2 oz Presidente® brandy
1 sugar cube
Peychaud® bitters
4 oz Champagne

Add Cointreau, brandy and a sugar cube saturated with Peychaud bitters to a champagne flute. Fill with your favorite champagne. Garnish with an orange twist.

I’ll be live tweeting from Dina’s Oscar party so don’t forget to follow me on Twitter tonight at @fashionstbeauty. Meanwhile, make some phone calls and make plans to throw a fabulous Oscar bash with these savvy cocktails!
