The entertainment world is buzzing with speculation of who will take home Hollywood’s most coveted prize at the 88th Academy Awards on February 28th, 2016.

The epitome of the film awards season, the Oscars, is routinely the most watched awards ceremony. As you eagerly wait to find out if this will finally be Leo’s year, sip on BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Gran Affair to celebrate film’s biggest night.

The fruity notes of pears and red currants, and sweet hints of honey from the Gran Affair’s centerpiece, BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Maestro de Ron, are complemented by lemon juice, pineapple syrup, honey syrup and a gentle herbaceous touch of dill garnish, to create a light, refreshing cocktail you can sip on and toast with all throughout the three-hour broadcast.
