3 sparkling cocktails to infuse your Oscars night with plenty of bubbly

Sparkling sips worthy of an award for your Oscars-viewing party

The next best thing to attending the Academy Awards (and possibly sitting next to Leo as he braves yet another night of great disappointment) is throwing your own fancy Oscar-themed shindig at home. Whether it’s a party for one or all of your closest friends, you’re going to need something fun and preferably bubbly to drink.

These sparkling cocktails have A-list celebrity written all over them, but the secret is that they’re easy enough for any of us non-celebs to make. And if you happen to have a bottle of Champagne chilling for a special occasion, well, then most of your hard work has already been done.

Cheers to an Oscars night you’ll never forget!
