I love watching awards shows. I don't often know all the shows or movies, but I love looking at the beautiful dresses and judging the acceptance speeches. I CAN'T NOT DO IT. With the Oscars coming up this weekend, I had to put together a list of my favorite Oscar-worthy cocktails for those of you who want to get a little fancy (even if you're still on the couch in your sweatpants). These cocktails are all beautiful and delicious and I promise you will enjoy every sip! 

1. The Black Tie

 This stunner is perfect for any celebratory occasion! There is nothing quite like the drastic contrast of black and white and this cocktail is the perfect example. I love how the egg white creates such a beautiful, airy foam on top of this creme de cassis laced cocktail.

 Bubbles, citrus, and the added beauty of broiled lemon slices make this classic cocktail extra special! It's a crowd pleaser without being overly tedious. You'll fall in love with this for sure!

 It may be a glorified wine spritzer, but it is also much more sophisticated! There is nothing about this cocktail that isn't absolutely delicious. Crisp white wine with a touch of herby thyme simple syrup and a splash of bubbly soda water make a perfectly elegant and refreshing cocktail!

 If you've never tried this gin cocktail, now is the time! And with spring on the way, what better way to celebrate than with a honey and bee pollen accented drink like this!

 Sweet, jammy strawberries are perked up with a bit of lemon juice for this pretty pink cocktail!

 This delicate and delicious drink is full of romance. The light flavor and blush color make it the perfect companion for watching the red carpet walkers!

 There is nothing simpler than a martini, but when you add a little rosemary flavor and garnish with these pretty and edible frozen grapes, you've got something really special.

 The Spring Fling is one of those cocktail recipes to always have in your back pocket. Sparkling raspberry juice, lemon, and lime juice, and a healthy dose of whisky make this an easy cocktail to throw together. If you've been scared of branching out and making your own fancy drinks, this is a great place to start! Plus, you can swap the whisky out for your favorite rum, vodka, or gin.

 If you've been following Set the Table for a while, you know I love to add my own twist to classic recipes. Cocktails are no different! This is my take on a classic sidecar. It's tart and sweet and the tamarind is a perfect ingredient to elevate this wonderful drink!
