City Pulse

By Candace Bryan

The 86th Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday night, and though the Oscars may be about achievement in film, for us, it’s largely about the fashion. Will there be any fashion faux pas this year? What will our favorite stars wear? We can’t wait to find out.

But this year, we’re especially excited, because we’ve got our hands on a tasty list of themed Oscar cocktails for the night. There’s the “Classically Cate,” inspired by nominee Cate Blanchett, whose funky style always lends a bit of tartness to a dull red carpet (just like a splash of cherry juice adds some oomph to a simple drink). The “Jennifer Juicer” resembles nominee Jennifer Lawrence, because of all our favorite stars, she’s the most bubbly (like prosecco), and like pomegranate juice, she’s always unexpected.

These recipes are all easy to whip up, whether you’re watching solo on your couch or having a party with all your friends. And with Skinnygirl™ Prosecco and Sauza™ Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila at the forefront, these recipes are the perfect for a night of celebration.

The Classically Cate
2 parts Skinnygirl™ Prosecco
1 packet of sweetener
1 part soda water
A splash of cherry juice
1 cherry as garnish (optional)

Add all ingredients into a glass. Stir quickly to mix and enjoy!

In a small pitcher, muddle together the mint leaves, basil, sugar and lime juice until they start to melt together. Add your Sauza® Blue Silver. Fill 4 glasses with ice and pour cocktail mixture ¾ of the way to the top of each glass. Fill each glass with club soda and garnish with an extra sprig of mint.
