Academy Award Cocktail Bar – Oscar Movie Mixology

We’re back with Part II of our Oscar 2013 Party glam posts. If you missed part I, be sure to click here for our Red Carpet Guessing Game. On to the drinks. Whenever I’m throwing a party, I always greet my guests with a drink. You can have a lot of fun “dressing” up your drinks for the Oscars. A simple gold gift wrap paper “cuff” glammed up the plain glasses above, while movie tickets dressed up an every day white platter. Accessorize those drinks, just as if they were working the red carpet. Best Picture Flags {get free printable below} attached to straws makes the drinks relevant for the season.

Don’t stop there, though. Get creative with the names of the drinks. Why not have an Academy Cocktail Movie Mixology Bar for the adults?  Scroll down for our cocktail suggestions that play off all of this year’s Best Picture movies, as well as a recipe and Movie Mixology printable that you can print out and place on your drink bar.
