Having an Oscar Party? We Have Drink Suggestions.
The Oscar’s are scheduled for this Sunday. I have my ball-gown picked out for my Oscar party. What about you – how will you celebrate the Oscars? Will you be playing hostess or will you be lounging in your pajamas? Why make not it a fun evening with drinks and friends? I even have recipes just for you. Don’t worry, I won’t get upset if you claim the drink recipe as yours. Sharing is caring.
The drinks recipes are all thanks for Xanté who graciously provided us with a bottle to sample the drinks for you. I know, its hard work being fabulous but someone has to do it. Xanté is great and it contains 17% less sugar than your typical liqueurs. What fabulous gal won’t love that? Ready for the drinks?
1.5 oz. Xanté
¾ freshly squeezed lemon juice
¾ oz. simple syrup
1 oz. strawberry puree (boiron strawberry coulis is preferred)
2-3 fresh strawberries
Muddle strawberries in a shaker glass. Add Xanté and the rest of the ingredients and shake with ice. Double strain and pour into a chilled cocktail glass with a sugar coated rim. Garnish with strawberry.
