Before the 2009 Academy Awards and at the Governors Ball after the show, The Patron Gold Cosmopolitan will be one of the signature drinks which the stars will be sipping and it is one great cocktail. This and The Ultimat Blueberry Martini are a collaboration of Patrón’s Ed Blinn, Wolfgang Puck and Cheryl Cecchetto - a star-studded line up to create a fare for the stars, what more could you ask for? So, as you watch the Oscar winners you can be sipping the same drinks they will be later that night.

Beyond its initial intention, this is a great cocktail and one of the few that feature the great taste of blackberries. Mixing that fruit with orange juice makes a great drink.
