Oscars Sunday is right around the corner, and if you're anything like us, you're probably brimming with excitement for the awards show of the year.
And what better way to celebrate the stars than to invite a few friends over and take in all of the red carpet action with a festive beverage?
Whether you're in favor of the red carpet fashions, the big winners or the behind-the-scene scoops, there's an Oscars-themed cocktail just for you.
We've rounded up two enticing cocktail recipes inspired by nominees:
The D is Silent
2 ounces DeLeón Reposado
3 drops Jamaican Jerk Bitters
1 dash Jerry Thomas' Bitters
.75 ounce cinnamon syrup
Grated fresh nutmeg
Preparation: Combine bitters and cinnamon syrup into mixing glass or shaker. Add tequila and ice. Stir well. Strain into glass over fresh ice. Garnish with shaved nutmeg.
2 ounces DeLeón Diamante
.75 ounce fresh pink grapefruit juice

2 drops Jamaican Jerk Bitters
Sprig of fresh mint
Preparation: Combine ingredients into shaker. Add ice. Shake well. Strain over fresh ice into double rocks glass.
Garnish by smacking a cold blanched sprig of mint. Slide mint into glass where it is high enough to reach the nose of whoever's consuming.
