Happy Hour: Oscar Cocktail


The Oscars are such a huge celebration that naturally they have their very own cocktail, the Oscar cocktail, named after them. Ok well, I'm not 100% sure of that, but I did find a tasty sounding recipe called an Oscar Cocktail so I assumed that it was named after the awards show. There are plenty of other famous Oscars (the Grouch, Wilde, De La Renta, La Hoya) that come to mind that have nothing to do with gold statues and this cocktail could be named for one of these Oscars. But let's all pretend, since the Oscars are this Sunday and all, that the Oscar of the Oscar cocktail is a little gold statue. For the recipe,



Oscar Cocktail
From Drinks Mixer

1 oz. gin
1 oz. vodka
3/4 oz. cherry brandy
1 dash grenadine syrup
1 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. orange soda
orange wedges, mint, maraschino cherry, optional for garnish

  1. Fill a glass (suggested: brandy snifter) with ice, then add all liquid ingredients.
  2. Stir, then toss in a few orange wedges, a maraschino cherry and mint spring.

Serves 1.
