On Sunday, February 24th, the 91st Oscars will be held in Hollywood... and we're counting down the days! While we all wish we could whisk ourselves there and wave at all our adoring fans from the red carpet, most of us haven't yet been discovered (despite being ridiculously fabulous!).

Sure, sure, the nomination of a never-before-heard-of wanna-be star may be a bit of a stretch, but if you're throwing your own Oscar bash this year, you get to make up the rules (read: you're free to live in a fantasy world all you wish!).

In fact, you can feel posh and expensive from the comfort of your own home. These Oscar-worthy cocktails will leave you feeling like you stole the show while ensuring your guests rave about your soiree for the rest of the year.

So grab a bottle of our ultra premium vodka, throw on a stunning ensemble, and get to mixin' and shakin'. It's going to be a star-studded night!

The Oscar for Lead Actress Goes To...

This year's nominees for lead actress are dripping in "diva." We've got Yalitza Aparicio for “Roma,”
Glenn Close for “The Wife,” Olivia Colman for “The Favourite,” Lady Gaga for “A Star Is Born,” and Melissa McCarthy for “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

While we're tearing our hair out over here trying to figure out who's stilettos are the fiercest, this delicious little number will help you keep your cool until the envelope is opened.

The Sparkling Diva

Grab your ingredients and whip up a tall glass of lovely! This elegant sweet sipper will be the star of the show.


  • 1 1/2 oz Equality Ultra Premium Vodka
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz simple syrup (add more, to taste)
  • Prosecco or Champagne

In an ice-filled shaker, combine your ultra premium vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously (because you can!). Strain into a champagne flute and top with a bubbly Prosecco or Champagne of your choosing.

The Oscar for Lead Actor Goes To...

While Christian Bale and Viggo Mortensen are repping the comedic drama genre, Bradley Cooper and Willem Dafoe received their nominations for straight up, hard-hitting drama. Yet, of all the incredible nominees this year, we're rooting for Rami Malek for his stunning portrayal of Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Such a bold performance from these brave boys demands a cocktail to match.

Equality Vodka Ultra Premium Vodka Be Bold

Be Bold!

This bodacious beverage is as bold as they come. If James Bond and Chuck Norris had a baby, this is what that little badass would drink.

A drink this audacious requires a bit of ceremony to prepare. Start by chilling your martini glass. Our favorite trick is to fill a martini glass with ice and club soda until the glass is frosty AF, dahling.


  • 4 oz Equality Ultra Premium Vodka
  • 3 Olives
  • White vermouth, to your liking

Fill a shaker with ice and add your delicious ultra premium vodka. Shake, shake, shake until your vodka is chilled to perfection. To get the best effect, shake your shaker so hard you shake your little ice cubes to pieces!

Empty your perfectly chilled martini glass and add a splash of vermouth, if you'd like. Swirl the vermouth around your glass to coat the inner surface; then toss the excess.

Strain your sumptuous martini into your glass and add three olives on a skewer to add a striking statement piece to your cocktail.

The Oscar for Best Supporting Actress Goes To...

Oh dear... how to choose, how to choose?? This year's nominees for Best Supporting Actress are: Amy Adams for “Vice,” Marina de Tavira for “Roma,” Regina King for “If Beale Street Could Talk,” and Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz who are battling it out for “The Favourite.”

Each of these ladies brings her own unique quirks and eccentricities to the silver screen, which is why we're sipping this silly cocktail in their honor.

The Funny Lady

You'll enjoy feeling frivolous with this frilly feature cocktail.


  • 1 1/2 oz. Equality Ultra Premium Vodka
  • 1 oz St. Germain Liqueur
  • 1 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 3 oz Cranberry Juice

Shake all of your lovely ingredients over ice. Then pour your cocktail into a martini glass garnished with a mint leaf and enjoy!

The Oscar for Best Picture Goes To...

  • “Black Panther”
  • “BlacKkKlansman”
  • “Bohemian Rhapsody”
  • “The Favourite”
  • “Green Book”

Shake, spin, and twirl to your heart's content, then strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a sprig of mint, then sip soundly.

And the Oscar for Best Director Goes To...

We've gotta hand it to these guys... it's no small feat to take a concept for a movie from script to screen. Give it up for these groundbreaking directors: Spike Leefor “BlacKkKlansman,” Pawel Pawlikowski for “Cold War,” Yorgos Lanthimos for “The Favourite,” Alfonso Cuarón for “Roma,” and Adam McKay for “Vice.”

If you have your own director's chair in your living room (doesn't everyone?), you'll feel right at home sipping this paramount cocktail when the big announcement is made.

Director's Cut

Vibrant and vivacious, this cocktail represents all the best things on the big screen.


Chop or tear your mint leaves and add them to an ice-filled shaker. Add your ultra premium vodka, honey syrup, Midori, and lemon juice. Shake like your movie career depends on it.

Strain your cocktail into an ice-filled highball and garnish with an orange twist or sprig of mint for a glowing glass of goodness.
