While the biggest names in Hollywood hit the red carpet for the last award show of the season, most of us will be watching the wonderful madness that is the 2017 Oscars unfold at home with a few snacks and a drink at hand. And because the ceremony is all about honoring the most critically acclaimed films, we're going to go ahead and say that it makes perfect sense to treat it like a boozy movie night with friends — you know, if movie nights involved glamorous red carpets and celebrity interviews beforehand.

To get you in the spirit, we found the only rum cocktail you'll need to pair with all the glitz, aptly titled The Hollywood Gold. Made with fresh pineapple, lime, and mint, this drink is super light and tasty. Your guests won't be able to get enough.
