Oscar-Themed Cocktails Mix Up The Competition

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – In honor of the 80th Annual Academy Awards this Sunday (Feb. 24), make sure “There Will Be Rum” at your Oscar viewing party.

Pernod Ricard USA, a booze distribution company, has just come up with five Oscar-inspired cocktails to shake up the competition based on this year’s Best Picture nominees – and some require rum.

Fans of Juno can enjoy a refreshing “June-go Citrus Splash,” which consists of Malibu Mango Rum, Malibu Pineapple Rum, and of course, orange juice, over ice.

Meanwhile, those rooting for No Country For Old Men can try a “Killer Coco Chai,” made with Malibu Rum, chai tea, and white chocolate liqueur, with a raspberry garnish.

There Will Be Blood fans can enjoy “There Will Be Rum,” a red concoction of Malibu Rum, ruby red grapefruit juice, a dash of grenadine, and G.H. Mumm Champagne in a chilled glass.

Atonement can score some votes with the “Atone- Mint,” which combines Stoli Blueberi, fresh lemon juice, sparkling water, sugar or simple syrup, and mint leaves over ice.

Finally, in honor of the lawyer flick Michael Clayton, there’s the “Michael’s Martini Brief,” which shakes up Stoli elit vodka, dry vermouth, and a rosemary sprig in a martini glass.
