Oscar party snacks

Are you having a party to watch the Oscars this Sunday? With all the glam, the celebrities and the great movies, you deserve to treat yourself with amazing snacks for the night! Here are some ideas I took from the web site foodnetwork.com. Hope you enjoy!

Let’s start with the red carpet cocktail. With champagne, gin, orange-flower water and pomegranate juice, this cocktail seems bubbly and sweet, plus the pomegranate juice gives it a red color to match the carpet!

Now, for an academy award snack, go for this exotic choice: Golden curry popcorn. With curry powder, kosher salt and butter, it will activate your palette and take you on an adventure, like a movie.

For the main dish, I suggest you make two dishes and give the chance for people to try different things. The first one is California flatbreads. Small squared individual pizzas with bacon, goat cheese, arugula and plum tomatoes is a chic Italian choice that will please everyone.

The second main dish choice is spicy tuna hand rolls. If you love sushi, this option will please you so much. With avocado, cucumber, carrots and delicious tuna, this Japanese meal is perfect for this glamorous night of movies.
