Apparently, we have another big weekend ahead if you are inclined to throw a party. Friday is National Margarita Day and Sunday will be the 85th Academy Awards. That link will get you to the Movies on About.com page about the nominees, but here we're going to look at what the stars will be drinking that night.

As with the Grammy's, Patron Spirits will be serving up the drinks at the Oscars pre-show and Governors Ball and if you want to get a taste of what your favorite celebrities are sipping, here are the official drink recipes for you to make at home. The recipes were developed, in part, by Wolfgang Puck and Cheryl Cecchetto of Sequoia Production.

The Patrón Gold Cosmopolitan - served at the pre-show reception

  • 1/2 oz. Patrón Citrónge Orange Liqueur
  • 2 oz. Fresh Blueberry Juice
  • 1 oz. Fresh Mango Juice
  • Blueberry Garnish
  • Silver Sugar Rim

Rim a cocktail glass with silver-colored sugar. Shake the ingredients with ice and strain into the prepared glass, garnishing with skewered blueberries. If you want to accentuate the 'sunrise' effect, pour the blueberry juice directly into the glass then shake the remaining ingredients and strain over top of the blueberry.
