At this time of year, it’s always fun to throw an Oscar Party, and while it may not be quite as lavish as the Governor’s Ball, you can mix up some of the same drinks as the A-listers will be drinking.
Tequila Don Julio has yet again partnered with the Governors Ball, the official Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ party, which follows the 95th Oscar ceremony on March 12.
The invite-only soiree will present an exclusive specialty bar experience curated by globally acclaimed mixologist Charles Joly, who will feature an ensemble of cocktails, each worthy of a leading role for the evening.
For Tequila Don Julio, curating a luxury drinks experience fitting for Hollywood’s most iconic stars is no small task! In anticipation of Hollywood’s biggest night, Joly and his team of experts have spent countless hours preparing the cocktail experience.
The esteemed cocktails – including Showtime Margarita, Best Picture Paloma, Director’s Martini and The Curtain Call – will require nearly two football fields length of fresh rosemary, 400lbs of ginger, 5,000 combined leaves of sage and mint, more than 1,000 mini gold paper clips for garnishing and over 3,500 citrus fruits squeezed.
So if you’re tuning into this year’s Oscars from home, think about the nearly two football fields length of fresh rosemary, 400lbs of ginger, 5,000 combined leaves of sage and mint, more than 1,000 mini gold paper clips for garnishing and over 3,500 citrus fruits squeezed.
