9 Classic Cocktails You Need At Your Oscars Viewing Party
Watching the Oscars has become a national pastime, with millions across the country tuning in to watch everything from the red carpet interviews to the acceptance speeches. While the show is sure to entertain, there’s no better way to watch it than at home, surrounded by friends and family, with a drink in your hand.
The Academy Awards have changed quite a bit since old-school Hollywood dominated the scene with their elegant wear and extravagant parties, but just because it’s in the past doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate the era of black and white movies while still cheering on for new movies such as The Revenant and Mad Max.
