I am super excited that Star Magazine’s Shallon Lester included NSSM’s Oscar cocktail roundup in Star Magazine Online! Click here to read. Now, stir up these cocktails inspired by the Best Picture Nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards and get tipsy!




IMG_7688The Martian starring Matt Damon. Damon plays a martian on a mission to the red planet Mars. Wouldn’t it be nice if Mars was actually red because of the Merlot rivers running wild? Here’s my tasty take on a cocktail from MARS.

Fill wine glass with red wine about 1/2 full
Top with Sprite
Squeeze in just a little lemon

In a high ball add 1.5 Whiskey, sour mix and 1oz orange juice, a splash of grenadine, ice and top it with a cherry.

IMG_76413. Bridge of Spies – This Tom Hank’s film is about Russian spies during the cold war. So it would only be fitting to throw back a Moscow Mule but let’s put some glamour into it and use Figenza Fig Vodka and call it a Mediterranean Mule.
