Sparkling sips worthy of an award

I've always dreamed of going to the Academy Awards. Now, as a simple ol' food writer, I doubt that'll ever happen. But that doesn't keep me from dreaming of beaded dresses, $5 million necklaces and all of the bubbly I can drink. Since I can't go this year, I'll just deck myself out in Sunday's finest and sip one of these bubbly drinks.

Just because you can't go to the Oscars doesn't mean you can't drink like you're there. These bubbly cocktails are fancy enough for an A-list celebrity and easy enough that any ol' Joe can make them. Plus I had three incredible bottles of Laurent-Perrier delivered to my house, so what better night to drink it all than on Oscars night?
