With the Golden Globes just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how and where you’ll be spending the star-studded evening.  Whether you’ll be throwing a Hollywood-worthy bash for your friends or be curled up on the couch, we’ve got the perfect cocktails to compliment your night.  Each of the following five creations matches up with one of hottest films or TV shows of the year, assuring that you’ll have the perfect drink in hand no matter which flick gets your vote.

Inception: It is only appropriate to provide fans of this convoluted thriller an equally mysterious and complex libation. Escape to another world with Lucid, the brand responsible for lifting the 100-year absinthe ban.  Mesmerize your guests by serving this anise-flavored spirit in the traditional method and watch as it morphs from green to milky white before their eyes.

Lucid Dream Stealer

Traditional absinthe drip. Pour cold water over 1.5 oz. Lucid absinthe.  Stir and enjoy.

Glee: Glee scored 5 Golden Globe nominations and the truth is – this show is a true fan favorite, due to its high energy musical numbers and campy style. For all the young kids in the audience, and maybe those who aren’t drinking tonight, we’ve got a great mock-tail that you can enjoy as you sing along to your favorite Glee hit.

New Directions Champion

1 oz. white cranberry juice
.5 oz. apple juice

Top with ginger ale and garnish with a cinnamon stick and fresh cranberries

An adult fan? For an extra layer of yum, add 1 oz. of Flor de Cana rum to give this cocktail a festive POP!
