Awards season is upon us! The 2014 Golden Globe Awards will be held this Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., but for those of us not attending the big show, Skinnygirl creator Bethenny Frankel has some tips to throw the perfect viewing party.
To begin with an instant, A-list effect, have a friend stand at the door and make sure guests are “on the list.” Then, print out nominee ballots and have guests guess the winners…and to make things even more fun, offer prizes for correct guesses! Lastly, Bethenny suggests encouraging guests to go all out glam with their outfits, and taking a vote at the end for Best Dressed.
Most importantly, though, are the cocktails! Try a “Danger on the Horizon” drink, made with Skinnygirl Cucumber Vodka. Mix with DeKuyper Pucker Sour Apple Schnapps, a squeeze of fresh lime and 2 splashes of seltzer, and serve in a cocktail glass with a lime garnish. If you’re looking for something more fruity, there’s also the Magnificent Mary Pop — 3 parts Skinnygirl Prosecco and 2 parts peach puree, blended on high until smooth.
SkinnyGirl will host a Twitter party during Sunday’s show, and for every participant, $100 (up to $50,000) will be donated to Dress For Success. To join the fun, follow and tweet at the Twitter handle @Skinnygirl – and use the hashtag #LetsDrinkToThat during the Golden Globes. The Twitter Party will start at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST.
