The Official 2013 Oscar Cocktails and Goodie Gift Bags

Before, during and after the 2013 Academy Awards the winners (and losers) will enjoy these official cocktails. Experience the fun and fame:

The Patrón Gold Cosmopolitan 
1 1/2 oz. Patrón Silver Tequila 
1/2 oz. Patrón Citrónge Orange Liqueur 
2 oz. Organic Blackberry Juice 
1 oz. Fresh Orange Juice 
Fresh Blackberry Garnish 
10 Carat Gold Rim


The Ultimat Blue Sunrise 
1 1/2 oz. Ultimat Vodka 
1/2 oz. Patrón Citrónge Orange Liqueur 
2 oz. Fresh Blueberry Juice 
1 oz. Fresh Mango Juice 
Blueberry Garnish 
Silver Sugar Rim 

Post Note, February 24, 2013: Don’t feel too bad for the Award losers. The marketing firm Distinctive Assets will hand out theirs traditional swag bags, valued at more than $45,000, to nominees who don’t win.

Bag goodies include trips to Australia, Hawaii and Mexico, personal training sessions, tequila, hand-illustrated tennis shoes, beauty appointments, "portion-controlled" dinnerware, acupuncture and aromatherapy sessions, a voucher for a fitness and weight-loss retreat and one-year membership to Heathrow's VIP service.

Niw when the 'bagless' winners start crying on the Oscar podium, you know why. Hopefully someone will also remember the staff who worked so hard to make the evening possible as well. Can you say, "Tip AND bag, please"?
