Oscar, Oscar!

I haven’t seen 90% of the movies nominated for Academy Awards this year (that’s because going to the movies in New York, well, sucks), but that’s doesn’t mean I won’t be tuning in to see Hugh Jackman take his turn as host. Here are my picks for the winners, along with a signature cocktail just for the occasion.

Best Picture: Milk
Best Actor: Sean Penn, Milk
Best Actress: Kate Winslet, The Reader
Best Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger, The Dark Night
Best Supporting Actress: Marisa Tomei, The Wrestler
Best Director: Danny Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire

1 1/2 parts GREY GOOSE® Original Vodka
1 part peppermint schnapps
1/2 part simple syrup
1/2 part cream
1 chocolate-dipped peppermint stick

Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until outside of shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat. Strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with peppermint stick and sip with pride.
