It's almost time for the most anticipated awards event of the year: the Academy Awards! What better way to enjoy them than at home with the remote control in one hand and a sweet treat in the other?

We know that when it comes to fun drinks there are so many options. Here are a few that are so delicious, and we’re sure that even if your favorite performer doesn’t take home a prize, you’ll still be a winner in your own living room!


1

Icy fruit slushes

These are so refreshing, and they can be prepared with your favorite fruit, or a combination of any fruits you love: strawberry, raspberry, banana, or even mango and kiwi! YUM. Just blend fresh or frozen fruit, ice, and a little sparkling water or juice until you reach your desired consistency.


2

Frozen hot chocolate

Transform your favorite winter drink into this unexpectedly refreshing version by blending together milk, hot-cocoa mix, and ice cubes until frothy. Serve in a tall glass with a big dollop of whipped cream and a fancy straw!


3

Hot dulce de leche

Combine a couple tablespoons of dulce de leche with a cup of milk in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk until just bubbling and heated throughout, pour into a mug, and serve with whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder or cinnamon.


4

Sparkling fruit punch

In a tall glass, mix together equal parts lemonade and cranberry juice, then top with flavored seltzer or lemon-lime soda. Get extra fancy by garnishing with orange or lemon slices, or dropping in some fresh berries.

McDonald's Chocolate Shamrock Shake®

Just writing these words makes my mouth water! This blend of irresistible mint with chocolaty awesomeness is perhaps the easiest treat of all, since someone else does all the prep – you just need to order it at the drive-thru and bring it home. The combo of whipped topping, green sprinkles and a cherry on top is festive, fun, and totally delicious.

Now you’re ready for the red carpet and all the awards!
