This Game and Cocktail Are Your Awards-Viewing Party Must-Haves

What makes a get-together more fun than some well-crafted cocktails and a themed activity everyone will want to join in? With the Grammy Awards coming this Sunday February 12th and the Academy Awards soon to follow, such an occasion demands something bubbly and alcoholic to sip throughout an evening of fun, games, and celebrity-ogling. Recognized wine producer Santa Margherita has shared with us the makings of an awards-viewing party to be remembered.

The Espresso Bellini recipe below is made with Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore, and its rich golden color filling a champagne flute calls to mind the shiny statuettes and trophies bestowed upon the best of the best each year. The winemaker has also provided an added layer of entertainment for your evening in the form of a Red Carpet Bingo game you and your friends can play while you watch the festivities unfold. Just print the cards, pour some drinks, and settle in for a night of at-home revelry you can taste.
