We can’t speak for everyone, but for the majority of us awards season for women is the equivalent to the NFL, with the Oscars acting as the Super Bowl. Before you tune in to the red carpet, whip up one of these Oscar-inspired low-cal cocktails to serve to your guests. And if you sat through the football game while your boyfriend yelled at the TV a few weeks ago, then he’s expected to sit on the couch, drink fruity cocktails and “ooh” and “aah” with you over dresses for a few hours. All is fair in love and war!
