Happy Sunday, friends! I hope your weekend has been fantastic, so far.
Are you watching the Oscar's tonight? I'm most looking forward to seeing who's wearing what on the red carpet. As for the Best Picture nominees, I've seen and enjoyed The Descendants, The Help and Midnight in Paris (which I reviewed here). I'm hoping to add The Artist to the list when I see it with my ladyfriends, next month.
Although I'm not throwing an Oscar viewing party, I am hosting my Literary Ladies book club today. In honour of the Academy Awards, I'm going to mix the ladies up a bowl of Silver Screen Punch - a fruity concoction the stars will be indulging in at the Governor's Ball following the awards ceremony. Cheers to drinking like a celebrity!
Silver Screen Punch
1 (6 ounce) can pink lemonade concentrate
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup frozen strawberries
½ teaspoon grated ginger
1 cup vodka
1 bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine
1 pineapple, cut into rings and frozen
In a blender, combine pink lemonade concentrate, pineapple juice, strawberries, and ginger. Blend until smooth. Pour into a punch bowl. Add vodka and stir to combine. Just before serving, pour in Champagne or sparkling wine.
Tip: To avoid watering down the punch, use frozen pineapple slices instead of ice cubes. Once the pineapple slices melt, they'll just add more juice to the mix!
