My favorite movie wasn’t nominated

If you disagree with all of the Best Picture nominees this year, don’t fret. Why not pick a cocktail that reflects the idea of being almost famous.

Some of this year’s favorite, most beloved movies didn’t make the top eight list. From Crazy Rich Asians to Incredibles 2, those movies had legions of fans flocking to the theater.

Critically acclaimed hits like If Beale Street Could Talk and even the First Man weren’t recognized by the Academy. Although this year’s nominees were more inclusive, everyone has an opinion on a potential snub.

Why not raise a glass to the almost famous. This cocktail, Ketel One Vodka Almost Famous, is a bright, flavorful sip. The use of Suze is interesting. That ingredient is a French apertif. It is bitter, floral and sweet. In many ways, it could be considered like an umami element to a cocktail.

This cocktail is also a little trendy. The use of guava juice makes it feel a little exotic. Overall, the cocktail is just on the verge of discovery, just like an actor who is almost famous.

Here’s how to make the Ketel One Vodka Almost Famous.

"Ketel One Vodka Almost Famous Ingredients 40ml Ketel One Vodka 30ml Suze 15ml fresh lime juice 15ml agave syrup 2:1 (2 parts agave nectar 1 part water) 30ml fresh guava juice 1 dash Peychaud’s bitters"
