As you may realize, I plan a party each and every week. What type of party am I helping you host this week? Well, duh, an Oscars watching party. The awards show of the year is this Sunday and I am planning a little shin-dig to celebrate. I made beautiful gold Oscar invitations, and created a three course meal with appetizers, pizza and salad, and a fantasy dessert extravaganza using recipes that Wolfgang Puck will serve to the stars at the Academy Awards after-party. No soiree is complete without a dazzling array of delicious drinks, so to see what Oscar inspired cocktails I have up my BCBG sleeve, read more
During the pre show hype and the appetizer hour I am going to offer two best picture inspired cocktails, The Departini (for the Departed) and a Royal-Tea (for The Queen). I've seen both of these movies and have deducted that the tequila-what I consider to be the bad boy of liquors-in the Departini is for the bad boys in the movie and the tea in the gin based Royal-Tea is something the real queen of England would drink.
With the show/meal I'll serve Laurent-Perrier champagne. Wolfgang is ordering this high quality French bubbly for the guests at his Governor's Ball and although I may not be a celebrity I'll pretend I'm a star by drinking a glass of this sparkler.
What cocktails will you be mixing up while you watch the show? Tell me about them below and come back mañana for more of my fabulous Oscar party plan. Next up on the to-do-list: the look.
