Don't feel like hosting your own Academy Awards party or mixing up your own Oscars cocktails? Good thing several New York City bars and restaurants are serving movie-inspired drinks. Here's where to find them:
The Strand Smokehouse: The newly opened barbecue beer hall's bartenders found inspiration in Lincoln for the cocktail The Lincoln’s RE:Union. It's made with Tennessee-produced Jack Daniel's whiskey (representing the Confederacy) and Brooklyn Soda Works’ fresh ginger soda (representing the Union), and fresh ginger.
L'Amant: The intimate cocktail lounge in the West Village translates to "the lover," so it’s only fitting that they offer a Cosette cocktail, after the beloved character in Les Misérables. This light and sweet cocktail is based off of a rum sour, featuring Cruzan rum, calamansi purée, egg white, a touch of lime, a dash of Jerry Thomas bitters, and cane sugar, and garnished with an orange twist rolled in sugar.
SouthWest NY: The bar is offering a cocktail inspired by Silver Linings Playbook. The Silver Lining is a combination of Tecate Michelada made with the chef’s special hot sauce, drank with a shot of Gran Centenario Silver Tequila.
Sarabeth’s TriBeCa: Just for Skyfall's nomination for Best Score, the bar dedicated a cocktail to Adele’s iconic theme song. Their Skyfall cocktail is just the way Bond likes it — made with Absolut Mandarin, orange juice, and Sierra Mist.
