With all the SoBeWFF hype and buzz, we've overlooked the fact that this Sunday night at 7 p.m. is one of the most important celebration ceremonies in Hollywood. We're talking about Oscar.
With so many gorgeous celebs under one roof and Seth MacFarlane hosting the show, its bound to be an interesting night. It's no wonder that Vodka powerhouse Grey Groose sponsors a number of after-parties that follow the award show. Which is why Grey Goose has created a special cocktail for said events. Sucks we don't live in Los Angeles. But luckily enough, the W South Beach is giving visitors and hotel guests a taste of the Oscars by offering up the same Grey Goose cocktail and its recipe.
Guests and visitors of W South Beach can toast to the spirit of awards season at WET with the same delicious drink that the stars will be sipping on this coming Sunday, win or lose. The Grey Goose Celebration Cocktail, as it was appropriately named, also made a celebrity appearance at the Golden Globes, Sundance Film Festival, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Starring Grey Goose Cherry Noir Vodka, the cocktail features a combination of St-Germain liqueur, fresh citrus, and topped with champagne and a suited up with a cherry on top. It's priced at $16.
And hey, if you're cashed out from the SoBeWFF or planning on having a potluck with some friends and gossip about who's best and worst dressed, well that still calls for some vodka. Here's the recipe so that you can make it at home and indulge with the stars from the comfort of your couch, courtesy of the W South Beach.
