In anticipation of the 88th Academy Awards, a line of Oscar-inspired mixed beverages has begun to surface. In honor of the iconic comedian hosting this year's awards ceremony, the Chris Rocktail is inspired by Chris Rock.
This simple cocktail requires minimal mixology know-how and a very small list of ingredients. This Oscars-inspired mixed beverage is made with a Cristal champagne base which is garnished with a red rock candy lollipop. Though the color of the rock candy makes no major difference, a red lollipop is highly suggested to coordinate with a striped popcorn bowl, a notable symbol that reminds many of the Academy Awards.
Pair this cocktail with seafood appetizers such as shellfish or crab cakes.
