In preparation for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards (this Sunday, Feb. 27) and the booze-filled parties, we've come up with a few pairings of our own. Yesterday we tackled five film/cocktail duos and today we bring you five more.
One cocktail for each best picture -- some known, some completely invented (the cocktails, that is). So sit down and grab some popcorn, or at least a tumbler, and get ready for one killer Oscar Party.
The Social Network: The Facebook
1 shot Blue Curacao
1 shot Gin
whisper of Vermouth
Most people prefer to stir the gin rather than shake it. Since Zuckerberg shook things up, we decided to shake ours to make a Facebook martini. Chill a martini glass then sugar the rim to stick with the Facebook color scheme of blue and white. Add ingredients over ice in a martini shaker, shake, and strain into prepared glass.
(Depending how dry you like your martini, add as little or as much Vermouth to suit your taste. One of my FB friends only speaks of Vermouth when making a martini.)

The Kids Are All Right: Local Red Wine
Those ladies are drinking red wine throughout the entire film. There is also an emphasis on local eating. We did not feel right serving anything else.
