The Oscars, like anything, are best enjoyed with a drink in hand, a gaggle of sassy compatriots, and your best judging face. The good people at Grey Goose have mixed up a lovely Oscar cocktail for your sipping pleasure, and we’re excited to have one in hand as we live tweet the show on Sunday night. Get ready to throw down on gowns, play bet roulette with Best Picture, and cat call Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. After all, you can blame it on the ‘Goose. Don’t forget to follow our live Oscar tweets @shedoesthecity, and tune in to CBC at 7 pm to see Vancouver editor Louisa livechat about the Red Carpet.


1.5 oz Grey Goose vodka
