Nine Best Picture nominees. Nine craft cocktails.
At Ever Bar inside the Kimpton Everly Hotel in Hollywood, there is a special menu comprised of beautiful and delicious cocktails each inspired by an Oscar nomination for Best Picture this year. The beverage director, Dan Rook, came up with the menu after watching all nine movies in 11 days. He translated recognizable moments in each film into a flavor or a presentation in each cocktail.
For example, the cocktail for Jordan Peele's "Get Out," features a side dish of dry Froot Loops alongside a tall glass of milk-like cocktail that's similar to a Ramos Fizz. The cocktail for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" straight up uses fire and bright red liquor, and it is meant to be spicy, bitter and angry - just like Frances McDormand's character.
The green cocktail for "The Shapes of Water" is served in a tiny bathtub with a small quail egg dropped in the middle.
The rest of the cocktails also have unique presentations: A small printout of the front page of The Washington Post served with "The Post," burnt toast served with "Dunkirk," dark red cocktail served in a light bulb with smoke for "Darkest Hour," and peach and gorgonzola cheese served with the salty and sweet "Call Me By Your Name" cocktail.
Ever Bar will serve the Oscars menu through the Oscars weekend and the week after. You'll also get a punch card that will enter you for a chance to win a free stay at the Kimpton Hotel if you manage to get all nine drinks sometime within the week.
