The Oscars Are Coming! Movie -Inspired Cocktails to Celebrate the Awards!

YES, it’s that time year and the Academy Awards clock is ticking down to the wire! Just in case you planned on watching the Oscars with Jimmy Kimmel (who I adore!) you need a cocktail. If you are planning on watching the pre-show AKA the red carpet that everyone strolls down, then you might need a couple of cocktails to celebrate all the fashion.

Better yet, invite friends over and tell them to bring a platter of savory or sweet small bites (even Girl Scout Cookies would do. I highly recommend the Toffee/Shortbread cookies because they are insanely good!) while you provide a cocktail fixings.

No matter if it’s a room full of friends or just you, here are two cocktail recipes that you should test drive. These sound extraordinary

Ingredients:

Nemiroff_Original_HighRes
4 ounces – Nemiroff Original Vodka

4 ounces – Tonic water

1 lemon slice

1 sprig of rosemary

Garnished with Juniper berries

Method:
Using a lowball glass or a tall highball glass, add ice to fill,
Pour the vodka in first.
Pour tonic water next and stir a couple of times.
Squeeze the lemon slice into the mix, add a sprig or rosemary and stir it as well
Garnish with juniper berries or the rosemary -whichever is easier to find!

These cocktails are pretty easy to mix up. The key elements are the spirits!

So invite friends and have a great weekend!
