The Oscars come around each year and it goes without saying that there is a new cocktail featured at each of the weekend's celebrity-packed events. The Red Carpet Glamour was the signature drink of the 2012 Governors Ball, the after-party of the Oscars.

This drink came about via competition, namely the Moët Oscar Cocktail Contest. The creator of the stunning cocktail is Chicago's Adam Seger who is in no way new to the scene. I really enjoy this drink because it is simple and allows each of the ingredients to shine through, including Hum Botanical Spirit which has "heady cardamom and Kaffir lime notes".

The one other detail that I must add is the importance of making your own sour mix. It is almost as simple as making simple syrup and there is no excuse good enough to justify buying a bottled sour. Your fellow drinkers will thank you for taking the time to mix sugar, water, lemon and lime.


Steps to Make It

  1. Fill a chilled champagne flute half way with ice.

  2. Stir the sour mix and Hum together in a mixing glass with ice.

  3. Strain into the flute until half full.

  4. Top with champagne.

  5. Garnish with a single rose petal.
