OSCAR COCKTAILS for The Academy Awards


Watching the Academy Awards is a tradition in my house. I haven't missed a broadcast in nearly 30 years and I don't plan on missing this year's Oscars either. I usually gather together a group of friends and we watch together, dissing the Red Carpet couture, rooting for our favorite movies and actors, and drinking lots of cocktails.  

For your Oscar Party I've put together a list of great cocktails to make your Academy Awards night celebration memorable.

Slice of Fresh Pineapple
Edible Orchid

SHIRLEY TEMPLE & ROY ROGERS
We can't forget these two famous non alcoholic drinks for the kiddies! The Shirley Temple is simply lemon lime soda with a Maraschino cherry and the Roy Rogers Cola with a Maraschino cherry.
This should give you a wide range of libations to choose from for your Oscar night revels. Now, dim the lights and shut off your cell phones, the entertainment begins.
