Oscar-Worthy Signature Cocktails

Sparkling WineI seem to have become somewhat of a cocktail queen on the Cvent blog. Even though I don't profess to be a cocktail connoisseur myself, I can't help but write a post any time I see a story that merges the two topics of cocktails and events!

So, I wanted to share a Chow.com article I read recently about Best Picture-themed cocktails. Any of these would make a perfect signature cocktail for your upcoming Oscar soirees, though they can really be enjoyed any time of the year (after 5 PM, of course.)

Among the 10 drink options, each based on one of the 10 movies nominated this year for Best Picture, I'd most like to try the Gold in Harlem, inspired by Precious, because I love a good sparkling wine! Here's the recipe:

1/2 ounce Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps
1/2 ounce freshly-squeezed lemon juice
3 ounces chilled brut sparkling wine
1 to 2 dashes angostura bitters

Pour schnapps and lemon juice into a saucer glass, then top with wine and bitters.

Remember that signature cocktails can be a great way to save money on your event budget. All 10 of these drinks are perfect examples of how to incorporate your event's theme into a memorable libation!
