Oscar Night is almost here and you know what that means: parties and cocktails!  Polar Seltzer shared with us one of their recipes inspired by Beasts of the Southern Wild, one of nine films nominated for Best Picture.

THE SPARKLING BAYOU

1 lemon wedge
2 sprigs fresh mint
1 teaspoon superfine sugar
1/4 cup grape juice
Ice cubes made with filtered water and various berries
Polar Blueberry Seltzer
1 small bunch Concord grapes, for serving

Place lemon and mint in the bottom of a cocktail shaker; add sugar and muddle to combine. Add grape juice. Fill shaker with ice; cover and shake to combine. Fill a rocks glass with ice. Strain into prepared rocks glass and top with Polar Seltzer; garnish with concord grapes and serve immediately.

I think I need to go get some grapes. Will anyone else be trying this cocktail for an Oscars party?
