You’ve seen all the movies, you’ve picked all the winners, and you’re taking bets for who’s going to wear what.  Now, the only thing left is a few friends and a cocktail shaker! We consulted a super Mixologist — plus a few of the hottest venues in NYC — for creative cocktails you can serve during the Academy Awards on Sunday Mar. 7.

Charlotte Voisey, an Mixologist for spirits company William Grant and Sons, has created three sexy cocktails, based on this year’s best flicks! Grab a bottle of Stolichnaya, and whip up a batch of drinks based on best picture nominations Avatar and A Serious Man.  Rooting for George Clooney in Up In The Air? Try Charlotte’s super fancy recipe for a very different take on champagne!

Or, maybe you don’t care about the movies, and just like to look at all the pretty celebrities! Try the Celeb-U-Bot from New York City hotspot 1Oak. Don’t care about the movies or the celebs? You can still have an Oscar party! Whip up a batch of Hurt Locker shots from Manhattan restaurant Southern Hospitality … and you’ll be hurting the next day! Check out all the recipes below!
