So what wine goes well with winning?
Bubbles of course!
Oysters and sparkling wine are always a hit: non-fussy, a big crowd pleaser, a bit exotic and exciting!
Seriously, though, when throwing an Oscar party or just a film night with friends, it is very important to be able to relax and enjoy the show with your guests.
So go with a nice cheese plate, some simple finger foods, along with bubbles on ice, and maybe even a berry pie — so easy!– that you can make ahead and smell while it cooks and cools! (Just buy the crusts, toss the berries in a little flour and sugar, and you’re good to go!)
Cocktails are classy and fun when made with bubbles, but they can be more work than setting out wine and beer — unless there’s someone at your gathering who would rather make cocktails than watch commercials! A salad is always nice to have as well — something crunchy and fresh — people can dress their own.
