Zero Dark Thirty Cast your Oscars vote with Bambara

To celebrate the 2013 Academy Awards, Bambara is featuring original specialty drinks, each designed for an Oscar “Best Picture” nominee and crafted by the expert bartenders in Bambara’s popular bar, “The Vault.” Available now through Feb. 24 when the awards are bestowed, every vote (order) will be tallied until the big night when patrons are invited to see how their selections fare against the Academy’s awardees. Bambara’s mixologists will issue their predictions on Thursday, Feb. 21. in the Vault.

“Our Oscar-themed cocktails this year were really a pleasure to create because there is a lot of creative inspiration from the subject matter and tone of the nominated films,” said Bambara’s expert mixologist, Austin Craig. “I was able to incorporate a local Utah whiskey that relates to the old wild west into the drink for Django Unchained which I thought matched up really well with the movie’s setting.”

With prices ranging from $9 to $15, the “Vault” is offering nine different Oscar-inspired specialty drinks until Oscar night on Feb. 26, including:

About Stuart Melling

My high school English teacher once told me I was the most arrogant young man she had ever met. Food criticism seemed like a natural leap. Stuart is largely fueled by Uinta Cuthhroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words he doesn't understand. Stuart is also a member of the Association of Food Journalists.
