COCKTAILS for the GOLDEN GLOBES

http://martinidiva.com

For this year's airing of The GOLDEN GLOBES I've put together six fun cocktail recipes to fit in with a Golden Hollywood theme. First are three golden cocktails and the second three are La La Land inspired.

This year's Golden Globe Drinking Game? Take a sip every time someone gets political.

"Overture, curtains, lights
This is it, you'll hit the heights
And oh what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it!"


Enjoy the Show.
