This week we have links to movie-inspired cocktails as we wait for the Oscar parties to begin. But one can’t live by cocktail alone, check out the links to chocolate and beer covered marshmallows from Chicago and tequila spiked cupcake cocktails from Brooklyn.
1 / And the Winner Is…
The Academy Awards are coming up next weekend, so there’s plenty of time left to gather together the ingredients to make one of these great Oscar Worthy Cocktails. Our money is on the Social Network. Which reminds me, have you liked our Facebook page yet?
2 / Movie Inspired Cocktails from Grey Goose
The King’s Speech took Best Film, but Grey Goose vodka was the star at the British Academy of Film & Television Arts awards after party. You can download the full list of the cocktails inspired by the 6 finalists at the Grey Goose website (make sure you go to the UK site).
3 / Where Kahlua is born. From bean to bottle.
NotCot has a fascinating 3-part photo series as they learn about the 7-year process of taking the coffee beans from the field to the bottle that we bring home from the store. Part I / Part II / Part III
4 / Chocolate covered marshmallows with Pretzel & Beer brittle. Yes, please
A hat trick (hockey reference) of awesomeness as Chicago chocolatier Truffle Truflle have brought together chocolate, beer and marshmallows in one delicious treat. Not in Chicago? You can order online.
5 / Cheers to the Caketails
Robicelli’s Cupcakes in Brooklyn is rolling out their latest cocktail cupcakes in honor of National Margarita Day on Feb 22. Just the description of their Partida Margarito and Angry Mango cupcakes has the Madtini staff wanting to run for the border.
