Irvington in New York City will project the Academy Awards in the main dining room and offer cocktails themed after Best Picture nominees, priced at $15 each, and complimentary popcorn. The Lady Bird, pictured, is a blend of gin, cherry liqueur, violet flower liqueur and lemon juice, with a garnish of cherries.
Ever Bar, located at The Kimpton Everly Hotel in Hollywood, Calif., has an Oscars Countdown Cocktail Menu with nine drinks inspired by each nominee for Best Picture, such as The Shape of Water, left, a concoction of milk tea brewed with jasmine and butterfly pea flowers, vodka, chai, aloe liqueur, ginger and rosemary. The drink is served in a mini-bathtub with a hard-boiled quail egg hidden inside as a tie-in to the film’s plotline. Another cinematic cocktail is the Dunkirk, right, which is crafted with gin, raspberry liqueur, lemon and egg white, and then finished with a toast “battleship” set on fire. Bargoers who try all nine cocktails will be entered to win a complimentary one-night stay at the hotel.
