That smell in the air, of faintly ego-driven but all-around giddy anticipation? It's awards prognostication season. And it's in full swing.
In our latest podcast, we analyze the Golden Globe nominees ahead of this Sunday's broadcast (Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting again!) and next Thursday's Oscar nominations. You'll hear our personal favorites, as well as our predictions for both the Globes and the Oscars. You'll also learn which one of us has a killer Estonian accent.
To honor the glut of gingers who entered the Oscar fray this year (Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Chastain, etc.) we sipped on the following:
Ginger Gold Rush
1½ oz ginger liqueur
1 oz Bourbon
½ oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Place cherry in bottom of martini glass. Shake ginger liqueur, Bourbon and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker over ice. Strain into the glass. Sip or slurp a little, and channel your inner ginger.
Because we just can't get enough awards talk, this podcast is a two-parter. We've noted important time marks below so you can skip to whatever category tickles your fancy. Happy listening!
