Blood Orange Rosemary Spritzer #SundaySupper from The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen

Oscar Sunday! Otherwise known as the “Super Bowl” for us creative kids!  I love watching the Oscars, the red carpet with the gorgeous (and what in the world were they thinking dresses), taking guesses at who will win and the montages.

Yes, I admit it, I’m a sucker for all the montages. I love them and I’m so not ashamed of it.

What I will confess is my lack of movie watching the last few years, it seems like I always catch all the Oscar nominated movies way way after the fact.  It isn’t because I don’t enjoy sitting down in a dark theater, with a giant tub of popcorn in my lap and tuning out for 3 hours.  It’s more that I find it so hard to find the time to give up and do it!

How horrible is that? So of course, I avoid all the Oscar parties and trivia nights leading up to my version of a fun night on TV mostly because I haven’t seen anything.

The guessing game is fun when you guess correctly though.

So while I avoid the real parties, I won’t say no to the #SundaySupper red carpet party, especially if you have something fun planned for tonight (even if it’s sitting at home in your pajamas with a glass of wine in hand).

I say any excuse to throw a get together is a good one and a party definitely needs a cocktail.

Since blood oranges are still in their prime, now is the time to grab a bunch and make some spritzers to cheer on your favorite winners.  I mean, I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t mind a glass in hand either, while they sit through that never ending show! Also because I just couldn’t decide on what type of spritzer to make, I made you three!

All you have to do is make your rosemary simple syrup, juice a lot of blood oranges and set up the bar with the options.

    I used to be so good about seeing all the movie nominations before the Oscars, but it’s been hard for me the last few years to find time! I can definitely find the time for this cocktail, though 🙂

    I love rosemary in a cocktail and have made something very similar with grapefruit. I am all over blood oranges myself, have bought them a few times already!! Nicely done!!
