Oscar-Themed Cocktails Shake Up The Competition

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re looking to shake up the competition for this year’s Oscars then make sure you serve Oscar-inspired cocktails at your Oscar viewing party.

Pernod Ricard USA, which distributes all sorts of booze, has come up with five cocktails based on the Best Picture nominees.

Fans of The Queen can enjoy a “Royal Tea,” which consists of Beefeater gin, chilled Earl Gray tea, lemon juice, and sugar.

Meanwhile, fans of The Departed can sip a “Departini,” which combines tequila, cognac, Cointreau and agave nectar with orange juice.

For Little Miss Sunshine, there’s the “Sunshine In Malibu,” a concoction of Malibu mango rum, Malibu pineapple rum, and OJ.

Babel can milk votes with the “Babel-On-The- Rocks,” which has Kahlua, Stoli Elit, and half & half.

Finally, in honor of Letters From Iwo Jima, there’s the “Lychee Letters,” which mixes up Lychee Liqueur, cognac VSOP, pomegranate juice and sugar in a rocks glass.
