You’ve seen the movies and you’ve loved them, hated them, and were possibly completely confused by a few of them. Now it’s time to root on your favorites during the 85th Academy Awards which will air tomorrow, February 24th beginning at 7 P.M. EST. No awards ceremony is complete without a few tasty bites and a Lushworthy cocktail or two. You’re on your own when it comes to those “tasty bites,” but I do have a handful of Oscar-worthy cocktail recipes to share. I’ve included included a drink recipe to the “Kilbeggan Funny Guy Fizz”, a Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey cocktail that was inspired by Oscars host Seth MacFarlane. I’ve also included recipes to the Pernod Absinthe-crafted and Beasts Of The Southern Wild-inspired “The Green Beast” and a cocktail from Skinnygirl that’ll hopefully bring out “The Showstopper” within. Enjoy!
