4 Oscars Cocktail Recipes: The Hilhaven Lodge To Be Served at Governor’s Ball

Since 1927, the historic Hilhaven Lodge estate in Beverly Hills has been the scene for some of Hollywood’s most legendary celebrations for many of Tinseltown’s most recognizable stars. This year the legend will continue, as The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey will star during the Oscars® and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Ball after-party on February 26, 2017, as the perfect whiskey for those celebrating Hollywood’s biggest night.

“The Oscar is the pinnacle of one of the world’s great art forms, honoring the best in cinematic storytelling,” said Dan Sanborn, SVP, Culture, and Partnerships. “In honoring this great craft that brings joy to millions across the globe we are pleased to offer a toast with one of America’s greatest crafts, The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey.”

Following the award show, attendees at the Governors Ball after-party will enjoy The Hilhaven Lodge Old Fashioned, a classic cocktail for a timeless evening. For the contemporary whiskey enthusiast, The Road Less Traveled features a mixture of Bourbon Vanilla Chai Tea, Burdock and Dandelion Soda starring The Hilhaven Lodge. The Lodge is a one-of-a-kind serve with The Hilhaven Lodge flash infused in a Japanese drip tower and then combined with Sweet Vermouth, Sherry and Chocolate Bitters for a show-stopping pour.

These cocktails make a statement for Hollywood’s most memorable evening and are just as legendary for at-home Oscars viewing parties. Whether celebrating at the Governors Ball, or at home, The Hilhaven Lodge Whiskey always encourages revelers to toast responsibly and ensure they have a safe ride home.
