Buttered Bourbon Pop-Tail

Buttered-Bourbon-Pop-Tail-1

Do you and your friends love seeing all the Oscar nominated movies before the awards are handed out? It's definitely movie watching time around here and the planning of a festive group Oscar watching party. It's so much more fun to watch with other people.

We'll need snacks, of course, but we definitely need cocktails. Since movie watching and popcorn eating go so well together, I thought a popcorn flavored cocktail would be fun on Oscar night. Making a popcorn flavored syrup is super easy and the taste will vary based on the type of popcorn you use. I used plain and added some butterscotch liqueur for that buttered popcorn flavor. But using kettle corn could be all kinds of fun. Make a big pitcher of this drink and a big bowl of popcorn and then settle in with your friends for a serious critique of what on earth the movie stars are wearing. Cheers!
