Oscar Cocktails: All that Glitters is Gold(schlager)

oscars85

This is the best time of year for movies. Not because of romantic comedies – but because of the Oscars! The three hour award show is my personal Super Bowl. And just like the Super Bowl, there are arguments, wild outfits, parties filled with fabulous foods and oh, did I mention the drinks?!

And let me also add, I did make all these myself – in my kitchen, photos withstanding.

Seeing Stars

Evian Bottled Water

Squeeze of lemon

Silicone Star Ice Cube Tray

Edible Glitter Metallic Gold

Fill star ice cube tray with water. Spread out glitter across several sections and freeze.

Pour ices cubes, water into Old-Fashioned glass. Squeeze drop of lemon into mixture.

Since the Oscars are all about Hollywood, showcase several Evian bottles across your snack table. What movie star doesn’t want to be seen without water!?

Note: Do not use dragees for ice cube filler. The FDA classifies them as ‘non-edible’ and are for decoration only.
