|The Hugh Jackman cocktail at Davio's|
The 85th Academy Awards will air this Sunday, February 24, in all its dramatic glory. To properly celebrate, a couple of Boston area places have some themed food and drink.
Sweet, the cupcake shop with locations in the Back Bay, Harvard Square and other locales, will feature special ones dolled up the famous Oscar icon and tuxes - and a chance to win 24 cupcakes! Stop in to one of the Sweet locations and fill out a ballot for your Academy Awards picks. On Tuesday, February 26, those with the most correct entries will win two dozen cupcakes of their choice to be delivered to their door (specialty cupcakes, $4.25 each; 617-247-2253).
Davio’s is mixing up some specialty cocktails to celebrate the nominees. Sip a Hugh Jackman (Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey, dry vermouth, sweet vermouth, bitters, lemon twist) or nurse a De Niro - a pretty flute of prosecco, Aperol orange liquer, seltzer and sliced orange while. (Specialty drinks are $13; bar snacks, à la carte; watching the awards with friend’s at the Davio’s bar? Priceless; 617-357-4810).
