Oscars or Olympics? We’ve Got 23 Golden Sippers That Celebrate Both!

Why gold drinks you ask? Do we really have to spell it out? Firstly, we’ve got a bunch of gold-medal TV watching to do concerning the Sochi Olympics. Secondly… hello? Oscars! No matter what sort of winner you’re toasting, a Midas-touched tipple is the appropriate answer. We’ve done some gold digging of our own, and now we’re coming back to you with our favorite ways to stay golden.

1. Ginger Prosecco: Impressive and so easy to make, this cocktail is a combo of prosecco and ginger beer. And that foam? It’s cotton candy covered in edible gold stars, and it’s stellar. (via Style Me Pretty)

2. Crisp Bourbon Apple Splash: Nothing like a little bourbon to warm you up after watching a spine-tingling bobsled run. (via Valley + Co. Lifestyle)

3. Lemonberry Martini: Sometimes all it takes is a single solitary stir stick. (via A Beautiful Mess)

15. Golden Girl: Edible glitter tops off a simple grapefruit-juice-and-prosecco combo. This one is just dying to be invited to your Oscar par-tay. (via A Beautiful Mess)

16. Toasted Marshmallow Rimming Sugar ($4): Alright, if you want to attempt the gold-sugar-rimmed glasses we just showed you, you’re going to need some edible glitter. Etsy to the rescue. Rather than just going for a regular sweet flavor, we suggest toasted marshmallow for a more wintery vibe.
