If you’re going to host a star-studded party, you need to think like a star. For Hollywood’s hottest, this night is all about the glamour, and what better way to be glamorous than to imitate the night’s most honored guests? Whether they’re nominated or simply attending, celebrities walking the red carpet will most definitely be enjoying a favorite drink (or two or three). As your guests gather around the TV, serve them what the celebrities are sipping to help give your red carpet party an authentic feel.

We were surprised that Lady Gaga’s favorite drink isn’t red wine, though we’re sure it has a special place in her heart. We do think, however, that this bold liquor of choice represents her personality flawlessly, and we know we’ll toast one to her as she performs at the 2015 Oscars!
