Tuning into Oscar Sunday, for many, is an event. An event that means black tie, watching the show on big screen, and cocktails.
If one wants to drink what the stars will be drinking, check this out. Each year, a Governors Ball Red Carpet Preview takes place and it will again. At that preview, press is treated to an array of food and spirits, to get a feel and taste of that to expect on Oscar Sunday, Feb. 24. At that preview is also a chance to see what the place settings and tables will look like as the Hollywood stars assemble at the first stop after the show.
But, those specials cocktails are always a highlight. Patrón tequila and Ultimat vodka cocktails will again be featured at the Oscars pre-show and the Governors Ball on Oscar Sunday® at the Dolby Theatre in the heart of Hollywood.
“Fresh juices always taste terrific mixed with Patrón – they really complement the refreshing smooth flavor of the agave in our ultra-premium tequila,” said Patrón’s Ed Blinn.
During the pre-show reception, the featured drink will be the “Patrón Gold Cosmopolitan.” It is a cocktail made with high-quality Patrón Silver tequila, fresh organic juices and gold sugar rum.
The Governors Ball will feature the “Ultimat Blue Sunrise,” created with ultra-premium Ultimat vodka, and fresh blueberry and mango juices. Chef Wolfgang Puck and Cheryl Cecchetto of Sequoia Productions helped develop and design the cocktails.
Patrón is produced from the highest-quality 100 percent Weber Blue agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Ultimat Vodka is one of the world’s most distinctive vodkas. Created in the birthplace of vodka—Poland—it is the only vodka distilled from both grains (wheat and rye) and potato.
“We’re excited to showcase Patrón, and also our Ultimat vodka, an exceptional luxury spirit created from a combination of wheat, rye and potato vodkas, at this year’s Academy Awards events, " added Blinn.
