LOS ANGELES (CIRCA) — The 91st Academy Awards may not have a host, but you can play host to your own Oscars viewing party, complete with themed cocktails like those featured at Everbar in Los Angeles.
The Hollywood hotel bar, situated in the Kimpton Everly Hotel, is known for its signature cocktails, which feature elaborate concept drinks that surpass the novelty themes and instead offer world-class creations that won't be found anywhere else.
Inspired by the film "Black Panther," this cocktail hearkens to the moment in the film when T'Challa drinks from the potion to harness the power of the Black Panther.
It also honors Wakanda's connection with Oakland, California, by featuring two kinds of St. George spirits, a famed California distillery: St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur and St. George Terroir Gin.
The recipe also calls for white rum, pineapple, lime and purple vanilla, all served in a small bowl with an LED light for a purple glow.
Inspired by the film "BlacKkKlansman," this cocktail honors both the resistance and the Colorado Springs Police Department from the film by being served in a CSPD mug with the upside-down, black-and-white resistance flag on the back.
The drink features Ketel One Vodka, Kalani Coconut Liqueur, kumquat jam, lemon, and is topped with Cocoa Krispies and an afro pick.
Inspired by the movie "Vice," this creation is a clear representation of former Vice President Dick Cheney, says Everbar manager Dan Rook.
The anatomical heart vessel is filled with Wyoming single-barrel whiskey (Cheney's home state) as well as Leopold Bros. Aperitivo, Luxardo Bitter Bianco and Amaro di Angostura.
Served alongside the heart are three buckshot bullet casing shot glasses as a tribute to the former VP's hunting mishap, and is topped with edible dragonflies in honor of the film's recurring fly fishing scenes.
These drinks, along with more for every Best Picture nominee, will be served at Everbar in Hollywood well past the Oscars into April, so make sure to stop in for your next visit to LA.
