Brunch Cocktail Recipes

February 19, 2017

So one of my favorite activities every year is watching the Academy Awards with my besties from Atlanta. I spend the first part of the year trying to watch all the nominated films so that I’m prepared to have an opinion on which one is best (I still have 1 more to go, so I’ll hold off on my opinion until then). We spend all day prepping food (similar to the Super Bowl), and then get all dressed up to watch the show. It’s the best.

But no Oscar Watch Party is complete without some fancy cocktails! Here are a few you can whip up in no time using your favorite vodka (from my friends at Dixie Vodka)!
