What Oscar Winners Will be Drinking

Drink like the stars!

Revelry inducer

Wish you could be at the Oscars on March 7? Well, you may not get to walk the red carpet, but you can drink the same concoction being served to the stars at the ceremonies.

The Golden Glamour

The official drink of the Oscars is called the Golden Glamour and, in keeping with the wealth of the imbibers, it uses some pretty nice ingredients. A fun four-pack of Moet’s Imperial Champagne in splits (1/4 bottles) runs about $40, and includes a one-use ice bucket and four funny little cones that you stick into the bottle so you can drink your Champagne like an expensive beer. The luscious vanilla liqueur called Navan also runs about $40. It’s named for its home town of Navana in Madagascar and the minute quantity used in the recipe is a testament to how powerful its aromas are. For folks who love to do a big Oscar party, this is a must. Golden Glamour 4 oz. Moët & Chandon Imperial Champagne 0.25 oz. Navan 1.5 oz. Passion Fruit Juice Combine all ingredients in an old-fashioned Champagne glass. Top with fresh sprig of mint for garnish.
