Oscars 2011: Buzzed Lightbeer, the Stammer Royale and other best picture cocktails
NYC booze purveyor Crush Wine & Spirits has come up with 10 signature cocktails to mix during your Oscar party -- or self-loathing solo viewing -- and we're feeling a little conflicted about whether our taste or taste buds should dictate our drinking.
Taking cues from movie titles and themes, some are straightforward ( "The Fighter" is just a glass full of whiskey) and others... a bit more subtle ("Toy Story 3" salutes a Michelada with the "Buzzed Lightbeer").
Our personal favorite? "The Kids Are All Right: A Modest Proposal," a spiked chocolate milk that evokes Swiftian satire to calm down any children staying up late to watch the show.
Make it a double.
