The Oscars anticipation is building, and beyond the who's-wearing-what buzz is the high-level preparation involved in pulling off the perfect viewing plan. But, even if you forgo a fancy-schmancy party to eyeball the Red Carpet parade in your pajamas, you'll need some sips to get you through the entire five-plus hour extravaganza.
While you can't go wrong with bubbly (that's what the stars will be drinking, after all), we've got something a bit more festive for your glass. The Underground in Chicago has whipped up six cocktails inspired by some of this year's hottest contenders. So, whether you prefer to toss back whiskey à la The Wolf of Wall Street, or defy Gravity with a tipple of tequila, you'll want to master these tastes by Sunday. Click through to pick your poison, just remember you do have to work the next day.
