And the award for the best tasting cocktail to sip on while watching an awards show is…Golden Statue Prosecco Cocktail! Come on up. Your statue is waiting for you!
Do you get excited about watching all the award show ceremonies, and are you a movie hound? I’m not exactly a movie hound, but I do enjoy watching all the glitz and glamour that Hollywood parades down the red carpet several times a year.
The award shows themselves are okay to watch, but usually very, very long and (in my opinion) a bit boring. This is why I much prefer watching the pre-show festivities out on the carpet. It’s fun to try and imagine myself walking the red carpet, hobnobbing with all the stars, wearing fabulous gowns and dripping in jewels and diamonds. A girl can dream, right?
This year I only saw two of the movies that are nominated for best picture. The Martian, and The Revenant. I truly enjoyed them both but for entirely different reasons. However, looking back on both movies I’m finding that they are somewhat similar in the fact that each depicts a man who is fighting against all odds to keep himself alive, and both movies (and men) show the resiliency, and beauty, of the human spirit. That alone deserves a cocktail! LOL
The making of a Golden Statue Prosecco Cocktail is super simple, and it can be awarded to anyone 21 and over, and for any occasion you care to commemorate. A college graduation, you deserve an award! A job promotion, you deserve an award! A birthday or golden anniversary…better break out the champagne flutes. And for persevering, even when times were their at toughest, and for coming out the other side even stronger than before, YOU deserve an award!!!
Place about a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of granulated sugar into two small bowls or plates. Dip the rim of each glass into the honey first, and then into the granulated sugar. Allow to dry for about 5 minutes.
Place about 3-4 frozen chunks of pineapple into each glass. Pour approximately one shot of amaretto and approximately two ounces of pineapple juice into each glass.
Fill the glass with prosecco and garnish the rim with an additional piece of frozen pineapple. Sip and enjoy!

Earlier I mentioned the two movies that I’ve seen that are up for the best picture award. Without having a guess which movie will actually win best picture, I might as well commit to my personal choice for best actor. Leonardo DiCaprio, this golden statue is for you! You kept me riveted to my seat during the entire movie, and I felt as though I was there suffering right along with you…Thank goodness I wasn’t. LOL
These Oscar wine glasses are some of the absolute favorites that I’ve ever painted. It’s hard to see in the first photo, but the golden statue even glitters.
