Let the award season begin! The 71st Golden Globe Awards is this Sunday January 12th. The evening is sure to be filled with glamour, gorgeous people, and of course globe inspired cocktails. As your hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will suggest you take a sip when they do, I have put together a few cocktails that are globe worthy indeed.
Transform your space in no time with flowers from the local market, take-out in posh bowls, and candles flickering about.
Mix up a batch or two of these superb cocktails, throw on your heels, and let the awards season begin!
