The Academy Awards is this weekend!!! Finally, the award show we all have been waiting for... my personal favorite thing to do during this very glamorous season is to create some spectacular star -studded cocktails to really get the celebration started. What better way than with some edible gold flakes too?!!? Here's the recipe for a cocktail that calls for just that, called The Starlet which will surely get your party started in spirit of the Oscars!
2.5 oz Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc
1 oz SVEDKA Vanilla
1 tsp honey syrup (2:1 honey:water, mixed well)
1 dash Angostura bitters
2 tsp edible gold flake
Combine liquid ingredients and 1 tsp gold leaf with ice in a mixing glass.
Stir with ice and strain over fresh ice (large cube preferable) in a rocks glass.
Sprinkle remaining tsp of gold leaf decoratively over cocktail.
