Whether you’re a first-time party-thrower or experienced host, here is USA TODAY’s complete guide to projectingÂ Â the best Oscars viewing party.
What to drink
Acquire the “best drinks” class by mixing up some Oscars-themed cocktails for you and your pals.
Inspired by La La Land, The Clase Azul “Sebastian” is one of the official cocktails of Elton John’s Academy Awards Viewing and Post Party in West Hollywood.
Here’s how you can make it in your home:
2oz Clase Azul Plata
1oz fresh grapefruit juice
1 Ounce pomegranate lime juice
1/2 oz organic raw honey
Top with water
In Clase Azul Plata, pour in a shaker filled with iceadd fresh grapefruit and pomegranate lime juice together. Top with organic raw honey to the end. Shake and strain into a glass. Top with sparkling water, add an original orange glow, and serve itÂ Â straight up or on the rocks.
WhatÂ to eat
What better to go with a few Oscars-themed beverages than several Oscars-themed snacks?
Even though you can’t fail with a movie-watching classic such as popcorn while watching your favorite film stars, even if you’re searching for appetizers that pack a bigger punch, the St. Cloud Times includes a list of recipes inspired by this year’s nominees,Â Â such as Moana-themed coconut pork and pineapple skewers. Here is the WayÂ Â to make them
2 pounds boneless pork shoulder
1 large fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
1 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
6-inch wooden skewers, soaked in Warm Water for 30 minutes
In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, lime juice, salt and pepper over medium heat. Whisk until sugar is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes. Pour the marinade into a large bowl and allow to cool.
Once cool, throw the sweetened condensed milk. Mix in the pork chunks, tossing to coat completely. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for around four hours , or a minumum of one hour.
Heat a skillet over high heat. Thread marinated pineapple and pork balls repeating until all ingredients and skewers are used. Grill skewers over high heat, turning occasionally until pork is nicely browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Drink hot.
