Oscar Party Cocktails

These cocktails were inspired by Natalie Portman’s performance in “The Black Swan” as a relentlessly driven ballet dancer whose obsession with perfection warps her mind.

White Swan vs. Black Swan, one movie, two drinks, one memorable Oscar party. If it’s simplicity you seek, kick off your red carpet event with two enticing libations. For this year’s Oscar party, plan on catering to both personalities. The White Swan, with its fresh orange juice and sparkling champagne embraces grace and innocence, while the Black Swan captures the darker and more sensual personality with its intoxicating combination of Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur and vodka.

The envelope please. And the Oscar goes to? You be the judge. Which swan cocktail matches your personality?
