There are different kinds of Oscar parties. There are Oscar parties with crostinis, idle chatter during commercials, and some mingling in the kitchen. Then there are Oscar parties where strong martinis are served, chiffon and satin are worn, and the volume on the TV is turned down low. And, of course, there are Oscar parties of two, where a laptop is propped up on some cookbooks and you spend the whole time debating who is "best dressed." Whatever the party, whatever you drink, you'll want something heavy and substantial in hand -- something like an Oscar.
