Award season is officially upon us! With the Golden Globes airing on January 6thand the other awards shows following close behind, it’s time to start planning your award show watch party! Whether you’re opting for a more low-key event (there’s nothing more relaxing than a pajama party with your girlfriends) or a high-fashion gathering, a little bit of pre-planning goes a long way. Keep reading for a list of our favorite party snacks, décor options, and skincare treatments to make your 2019 watch party the best one yet!
What to Drink:
There’s nothing like a themed cocktail to get the party started! Whip up a festive signature cocktail using this awesome, low-calorie recipe from Evite. Not a drinker? Opt for a delicious mocktail instead! Finish off the drinks with a citrus twist or a sprinkle of edible glitter!
Cocktail: The Winner
- 3 oz. Brut Champagne
- 1 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
- 2 oz. club soda
- Lemon twist (for garnish)
Pour St. Germain into a champagne glass, then top with champagne and club soda. Garnish with a lemon twist and serve.
Mocktail: Virgin Moscow Mule
- 1-2 tbsp. of lime juice (fresh is best)
- 1 tbsp. simple syrup
- ¼ cup club soda
- 3-4 mint leaves (torn, optional)
- ¾ cup ginger beer
- Crushed ice
- 1 lime wedge (for garnish)
In the bottom of the cup, pour lime juice, simple syrup, and club soda. Add mint leaves, then stir. Fill the cup about halfway with ice and pour ginger beer on top. Garnish with mint leaves and a lime wedge, if desired, and serve.
What to Eat:
Everyone knows that a party isn’t a party without some high-quality snacks. Keep the award show vibe going with movie-themed canapés that both taste great and look delicious.
Truffle and Parmesan Popcorn
- 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
- ¼ cup chopped fresh chives
- 2 tsp. black truffle salt or oil
- Salt (to taste)
- Freshly ground pepper (to taste)
- 1 cup grated parmesan
- 1 bag of microwaved popcorn (popped as directed)
In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and chives. Saute until the butter is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and add the truffle oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the popcorn into a large bowl and pour over the truffled butter and sprinkle in the Parmesan. Toss well to combine and serve immediately.
Champagne Jello Shots
- 1 ½ cups of champagne (divided)
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 envelopes of gelatin
- ¼ cup vodka
- Rainbow sprinkles or edible glitter (for garnish)
Combine 1 ¼ cups of champagne, lemon juice, and sugar in a saucepan. Sprinkle gelatin on top. Let gelatin soften for about two minutes to bloom, then heat mixture over low heat. Stir until gelatin has completely dissolved, about 2 to 3 minutes, and remove from heat. Stir in remaining ¼ cup of champagne and vodka.
Grease a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Pour mixture into mold and chill for 2 hours, or until firm.
Invert jello to parchment paper-lined cutting board and slice into squares. Dip each square in sprinkles or edible glitter and serve cold.
Cheesy Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs
- 1 dozen figs (de-stemmed, de-seeded, and sliced in half)
- 4 oz. brie or goat cheese
- 12 thin slices of prosciutto (sliced in half lengthwise)
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
- Balsamic vinegar (for garnish)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Slice prosciutto lengthwise and de-stem, de-seed, and slice the figs in half.
Take each half of the fig, scoop a tablespoon of cheese into the center, then wrap with a halved slice of prosciutto and secure it with a toothpick. Repeat for all 24 slices of fig. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until prosciutto is crispy. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool slightly before garnishing with balsamic vinegar (if desired) and serve.
