Oscar Party Cocktail Recipes

Celebrate The 2010 Academy Awards With Movie-Themed Cocktails

 

Overview

This year marks the first time the Academy Awards are opening up the “Best Picture” category to 10 nominees—twice the historical five). To celebrate, we’re presenting ten cocktail recipes, courtesy of the Hilton Chicago/Indian Lakes Resort.

Created in honor of the films, each has the style to complement the nominated films (it’s a dead giveaway, but the aqua-blue cocktail at the right is for Avatar). If you’re in the Chicago area, you can visit the Resort on Oscar night to have the cocktails served to you. Otherwise, invite over some friends, and let everyone drink the cocktail for their favorite movie of the year! This is Page 1 of a 2-page article.
