Madtini presents its Oscar Favorites

Oscar night is finally here and the red carpet will soon be full of the best and brightest stars of Hollywood and the rest of the motion picture world. A stellar group of ten movies have been nominated for best picture of the year, and the Madtini Research Team have chosen four of their favorites to share with you.

The Na’vi is inspired by the 10 foot tall blue-skinned natives of the moon Pandora and features delicious citrus flavours, garnished with two blackberries. The Hans Landa is named after the highly effective Nazi interrogator from the Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds, is made up of Jagermeister (which translates as Hunt Meader)and Goldschl├Ąger, the delicious Italian cinnamon liqeuer. Alien Blood, inspired by Neill Blomkamp’s science fiction thriller District 9, is a dark red mix of Vodka, Grenadine and muddled blackberries. The final cocktail is inspired by the clouds of Pixar’s latest animated masterpiece UP, about an widower who flies his house to South America suspended hundreds of brightly colored helium balloons.

We hope you enjoy these cocktails and that you’ll be there with us tonight cheering on the best of the motion picture world.
